Absentee ballots available for Willmar special election


WILLMAR — Absentee voting begins Monday in the special election to fill a vacant Willmar City Council seat.

The election is only for residents in Ward 4, who will be choosing a replacement for Doug Reese. The longtime city councilman resigned after he was elected in November to the Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners.

Jay Lawton and Audrey Nelsen are running for the City Council seat.
