Get Out the Vote! Absentee Voting Starts This Week

In Minnesota, voters can apply for and receive absentee ballots starting this week. Absentee voting, also known as early voting, is an easy way to ensure that you can cast your vote if you don't know your schedule for Election Day.

The state has a crucial role in setting payment rates for long-term care providers and creating the regulatory environment in which providers operate. This fall, share your story by engaging with candidates seeking office and casting your vote. All U.S. House representatives, statewide offices (Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Auditor), state representatives, state senators, and local offices are up for election this year.

In case you missed it, LeadingAge Minnesota and the Secretary of State’s Office hosted a webinar on helping the seniors in our settings exercise their right to vote. A recording of the webinar is available for free to LeadingAge Minnesota members in our Education Resources catalog.
