Early in-person voting starts on Friday

In Minnesota, you can vote early and in-person starting on Friday, September 18, 2020.

Of course, you could vote in person on November 3, 2020, but the lines will probably be shorter on Friday.

If you want to vote early but do not know where or how visit the Minnesota secretary of state web site.

Some candidates running in the 2020 election have ads so that when you search Google for election information the first thing that comes up is an ad telling you to “secure your vote”

You do not need to secure your vote. You may need to register though if you are not already registered. You can also register on election day or when you go to your county election office for early in-person voting.

If you do not live in Minnesota you will need to register in your own state.

My plan is to use my absentee ballot and drop it off in person at my county election site. That way I get the best of both worlds as far as in-person and absentee.  Here is some information from Ramsey county on how to do that.

You can check to see if your vote was received without ever leaving your house. Track your vote online. 

Voting twice or trying to vote more than once is illegal in every state. Use the vote tracker to make sure your ballot was accepted.

I am sure you are sick of reading about voting but I never get sick of writing about it and am proud of the fact that I have never missed an opportunity to vote. I even vote in the local elections because I care about schools and firefighters and policing too.
