Kevin Dahle will be the only name on the ballot for the Primary election to be held on December 18, 2007 for the DFL representative for State Senator. The General election will be held on January 3, 2008. Voters residing outside the district will need to submit their request for an Absentee Ballot Application to the Rice, Scott, LeSueur, or Sibley County Auditor (depending on the County you live in). Upon receiving the request for an Absentee Ballot Application, the County Auditor will forward you the Absentee Ballot. You can also go to the County Auditor’s office after the Primary, fill out the Absentee Ballot request and vote then and there. This makes it certain the request or ballot will not be lost in the mail.
This Absentee ballot will then have to be returned to the County Auditor’s office by January 3, 2008. Steps to be taken to vote in the General election are as follows:
…Visit the Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State’s official website.
