“Minnesota voters didn’t need to reach for an excuse this year to get an absentee ballot and vote early. The result: A record number of Minnesotans are voting before Election Day,” writes MPR News reporter Sasha Aslanian.

“More than 170,000 Minnesota voters have already cast their ballots in early voting, a huge jump from years past,” she adds.

“You’ve always been able to vote absentee, I guess, since the Civil War but you had to have an excuse like ‘off fighting in a war,'” Secretary of State Mark Ritchie said Monday.

Still, many more voters are expected at the polls today. Whether you voted in person or via the mail, tell us about your experience in the comment section. If there is something you saw or experienced that rises to the level of news coverage tell MPR News.
