To clarify the Sept. 5 Free Press Our View’s statement referring to the waiving of the witness requirement on absentee ballots, I note that only voters registered to vote on or before Oct. 13 do not need a witness.

Here is a quote from the Secretary of State’s website:

“Your signature envelope might have a box for a witness to complete and sign. Due to COVID-19, there is no witness requirement for registered voters for the Nov. 3, 2020 State General Election. Non-registered voters will still need a witness, to indicate their proof of residence.”

Here is the direct link to that information: www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/other-ways-to-vote/vote-early-by-mail/

League of Women Voters, St. Peter Area, encourages voters to visit MNVotes.org for further information on all aspects of elections and voting.
