Voter casts absentee ballot in person
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Voters in Minnesota can now take a look at the ballot before election day. The Minnesota Secretary of State's office unveiled a new tool on its website called "My Ballot."
Just by entering their address, voters can see which candidates and what measures will be up for vote this November.
The site also links to candidates' websites so voters can learn more about their choices. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says it will be an especially useful tool this year.
"This year was a year of redistricting. The whole state has a new map. Many people are finding themselves now living in a new precinct. They have a new polling place and they're finding that many of the candidates are new to them," said Ritchie.
The site also has tools to help people find their polling places, make sure they're registered and track their absentee ballot.
