“As one of the earliest states in the nation to open voting, Minnesota’s no excuse absentee ballot process allows all Minnesotans every opportunity to participate in our important elections.
“The right to freely and fairly vote either in-person or via absentee mail ballot request ensures that democracy is at the forefront of our state.
“It’s disconcerting that Democratic Secretary of State Steve Simon is using $1.2 million of taxpayer dollars to scheme and confuse voters about the voting laws that exist in Minnesota. Because the Democrats failed in their quest of universal all vote by mail, now they are using the SOS office to try and game the system.
“We believe and encourage all eligible voters to participate in our elections, either in-person or via absentee. True voter promotion, starts with ensuring all voters understand their rights and the ways in which they can vote; which in Minnesota includes same-day voter registration in-person.”
