Absentee ballots for primary in Aug. can be cast today


WILLMAR -- Starting today, absentee ballots can be cast for candidates in the primary election.

This is much earlier than in the past and helps the state meet federal guidelines to ensure that overseas military personnel have adequate time to return their absentee ballots to be counted.

Minnesota has traditionally held its primary election in September after Labor Day. This year it will be on Aug. 10.
