MINNESOTA SECRETARY OF STATE MARK RITCHIE STOPPED IN FAIRMONT WEDNESDAY. HE URGED VOTERS TO GO ON LINE AT www.mnvotes.org TO CHECK VOTER REGISTRATION, FIND YOUR POLLING PLACE AND CHECK ON ABSENTEE VOTING. ELIGIBLE VOTERS HAVE UNTIL SATURDAY TO CAST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT AT THE COUUNTY AUDITOR'S OFFICE.

THE SECREATRY OF STATE'S WEBSITE HAS AN OPTION CALLED MY BALLOT THAT ALLOWS VOTERS TO REVIEW CANDIDATES UP FOR ELECTION. MY BALLOT ALSO ALLOWS VOTERS VIEW THE TWO PENDING CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS ON THIS YEARS BALLOT- PERTAINING TO SAME SEX MARRIAGE AND VOTER PHOTO I.D.

RITCHIE COMMENTED THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE STATE GO BACK TO MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO PASS AMENDMENTS SAYING THAT THE STATE ONLY REQUIRES A SIMPLE MAJORITY OF VOTES TO PASS AN AMENDMENT WHILE MOST OTHER STATES REQUIRE A SUPER 75 PER CENT MAJORITY VOTE.

RITCHIE EXPRESSED SOME CONCERN ABOUT THE PHOTO I.D REQUIREMENT TO VOTE. HE SAID THERE ARE SOME 530 TOWNSHIPS IN THE STATE THAT HAVE GONE TO VOTE BY MAIL AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO GIVE IT UP IF PHOTE I.D. PASSES. HE ADDS FOR TOWNSHIPS AND THE COUNTY IT IS A MONEY ISSUE.
