August primary election bill sent to governor today
ST. PAUL (AP) - A bill moving Minnesota's primary election to Aug. 10 is now in Gov. Tim Pawlenty's hands.
The Senate voted unanimously Monday to accept a House version of the bill.
If Pawlenty signs it as he has indicated, voters will head to the polls a month earlier than usual. The move is to comply with a federal law to allow time for military voters overseas to mail in ballots.
