Minnesota’s August 14th primary election is just over two weeks away — and now summer fun doesn’t have to keep you from casting your ballot in hotly-contested primary battles for U-S Senate, governor, attorney general and several U-S House seats. Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon says, “Because we have no-excuses absentee voting, you don’t have to be there August 14th. If you’re on a family trip, if you’re on a boat, on a bike, out of state, it doesn’t matter. You don’t have to be there any more, like you once did.” For more info, visit mnvotes-dot-org.
Simon says Minnesota is on pace to break a record for vote-from-home participation in the rapidly-approaching August 14th primary election. “Word is getting out about the ability to vote before election day and not having to be there on August 14th — rather, voting absentee,” he says.
