Legislation that modifies military and overseas voting for military personnel and persons with indefinite residence outside the U.S. was heard in the Rules and Administration Committee this week. The bill allows National Guard members called to service by the state to use the same special procedures for voting as when they are called to service by the Federal Government. It also allows children of Minnesota citizens born abroad to vote in Minnesota if their parents are eligible to vote in the state.
The original bill language was heard in Rules and Administration this week as part of the Omnibus Elections Bill. (S.F. 455)
