on the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State Website

St. Paul, Minn.—May 23, 2012—Secretary of State Mark Ritchie announced today that the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State website will host a Constitutional Amendment voter information webpage on the Office’s voter education website www.mnvotes.org.

“This office, as always, is committed to providing voters with information to help them be civically engaged,” said Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.  “This voter education webpage will help voters educate themselves about the constitutional amendment process.”

The Constitutional Amendment information page will include answers to frequently asked questions about the amendment process and other voter education resources.

In addition, as required by MN Statutes 10.60 Subd. 4 (d) (2),  the website will post links from any individual or group advocating for or against or who takes a neutral position in respect to a ballot question.  These links will be maintained until the business day following the day on which the State Canvassing Board has declared the results of the state general election or November 30 whichever date is earlier. 

If an individual or group would like to have a link to their Constitutional Amendment information displayed on this webpage they must submit a request in writing to secretary.state@state.mn.us .  The request must include a valid website address and contact information including a current email address. 

Additional voter education information is available at www.mnvotes.org or by contacting the Office’s voter outreach director at: 651-201-1339.
