In light of the court ruling handed down by the 8th circuit court on Thursday evening making any ballots received after 8 pm on November 3rd possibly invalid, we are encouraging all voters to either vote in person, early or on election day OR bring their absentee ballot to a drop box.
The League of Women Voters realizes that for some people getting to a drop box may be difficult or impossible, so they have decided to offer a pickup/drive to deliver ballot service on, Monday, November 2nd and Tuesday, November 3rd—Election Day.
Service will be for those who have a completed ballot. Each volunteer would be able to drop off a maximum of 3 ballots and must have their ID available when they do this. This service does not include a ride to the polls.
They will inform volunteers of requests and coordinate the effort. There are several drop boxes and sites that will accept the ballots. Here is a link to the Minneapolis sites: https://vote.minneapolismn.gov/voters/ballot-drop-off/
If you are interested in helping with this, please email Marilyn Cantisano at [email protected] and, you can help by helping us get the word out to those who may still have a ballot that needs to be returned:
