Secretary Simon announces statewide mailing to encourage vote from home

9/24/2020

Today, Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon shared details of a letter, soon to be delivered to every registered voter in Minnesota who has not already requested an absentee ballot, encouraging them to Vote From Home. The mailing, which includes an absentee ballot application, will start arriving in mailboxes across the state this week.

“During a pandemic, we have to view this election as a public health challenge,” said Sec. Simon. “In a normal year, the appeal of voting from home is comfort and convenience. But this year, it’s also a public service – because every person who votes from home is making the polling place a little bit safer for voters who need or prefer to vote in person. This mailing is all about making sure Minnesota voters know that voting from home is easy, safe, and secure.”
