Member FDIC II IIII IIIIIII I IIIIII II ttttttttt li ©W Secretary of State Mark Ritchie announces new online feature to help voters check the status of their absentee ballots On the opening day of absentee balloting for the 2010 general elec- tion, Secretary of State Mark Ritchie unveiled a new online feature that will help voters check the status of their absentee ballots. The launch of the Absentee Ballot Lookup service is part of the Office of the Secretary of State's continuing commitment to use technology to provide added convenience to voters. This service will streamline election admin- istration resulting in cost savings to local governments and ensur- ing Minnesota is in full compliance with the recent federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act. "We anticipate that more than 150,000 Minnesotans will vote by absentee ballot this election year," Ritchie said. "This new ser- vice will give voters, especially our military personnel serving over- seas, an easy and convenient way to check the status of their absen- tee ballots." The online service informs absentee voters about the current status of their ballots with one of the following types of messages: • Your absentee ballot applica- tion has been received. • Your absentee ballot has been sent to you on (date). • Your absentee ballot has been received. • Your absentee ballot will be counted. • Your absentee ballot has been rejected for (reason). • Your replacement ballot has been sent on (date). In addition, the service will provide helpful links to additional voter resources such as county auditor contacts and a listing of candidates appearing on voters' ballots. In cases where a replace- ment ballot is not sent, voters will be presented with options to con- sider if they want to vote in the election. To use the secure service, vot- ers must provide the following information: • First and last name (name must match voter's name entered on the absentee ballot application or voter registration). • Full date of birth. • The same identification num- ber the voter used on the absentee ballot application. Those voting absentee are encouraged to visit , to use the Absentee Ballot Lookup periodically to stay up-to- date about the status of their bal- lots. For convenience, the office is also posting a link to the service on its Military and Overseas Voter web tool, which was designed by this office in partnership with the Over- seas Vote Foundation to help mil- itary personnel and others serv- ing overseas request their absen- tee ballots. Visit for more information. Secretary Ritchie reminded absentee voters to pay special attention to the instructions in their absentee ballot materials and be sure to fill out the required forms completely. "The Absentee Ballot Lookup is a valuable resource that will keep voters informed and help alert voters to any problems that may occur while there is still time to correct them," Ritchie said. Voters may only vote absentee for one of the following reasons: • Absence from the precinct • Observance of religious disci- pline or holiday • Illness or disability • Serving as an election judge in another precinct • Emergency or quarantine declared by governor, federal or state government. In-person absentee ballot- ing begins today for the general election. Voters may visit their county auditor's office, or in some cases their city clerk's office, to vote absentee. Visit the office's one-stop voter Web site at , for more informa- tion about voting absentee eli- gibility, and elections. Different absentee balloting procedures exist for military and overseas vot- ers. Visit , for more information.
