Absentee balloting changes

ROCHESTER, Minn. A change coming to absentee ballots could mean more voters using them.

State lawmakers in Minnesota recently passed a law that would give those who want to vote absentee, a chance to, with no questions asked. Before, you would need an excuse in order to get a absentee ballot. “We will probably be busier as far as the absentee voting goes. We will probably have more people that will participate and make it more convenient for them to come and vote their ballots,” Election Administrator for Olmsted County Pam Fuller said.

This year’s election will be held in November.
