Absentee voting has begun in Minnesota for voters who can't make it to the polls on Election Day, November 6th.
State law allows absentee voting for voters who won't be home on Election Day or can't vote then for other reasons, including illness or disability, religious observance, an officially declared emergency or service as an election judge.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie told Winona Radio News absentee ballots are available right now. In-person absentee voting continues until 5 p.m. on Nov. 5th, the day before the election. To vote by mail, voters must submit an application and get the absentee ballot back to local election officials by Election Day.
