Ritchie pushes early voting
ST. PAUL - Lessons from 2008 guide Secretary of State Mark Ritchie's 2009 legislative agenda.
The state's top election official is calling for an earlier primary election, a new in-person voting system ahead of Election Day and fundamental changes to Minnesota's absentee voting laws.
"Our system is basically sound," Ritchie said Wednesday. "But we also have the opportunity to see some of the things that we could make improvements on."
