MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A change in state law has inflated absentee voting in Minnesota by 65 percent so far compared to four years ago.

Deputy Secretary of State Beth Frazier says voters no longer need a valid reason to vote early. Frazier says it’s too late to get a ballot sent to you, but you can go to the local county or city elections office and fill out your ballot.

Frazier tells WCCO-TV (https://cbsloc.al/105V9B4 ) that even if a voter has applied for an absentee ballot and hasn’t sent it, you can still go to a polling place on Election Day.
