ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) No shortage of people voting early in next week's general election.
Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer Randy Schreifels says his officer has received about 4,100 hundred reuqests for absentee ballots. About 2,700 of those ballots have already been filled out and turned in.
During the last presidential election in 2008, 5,200 Stearns County residents voted absentee, and Schreifels says they'll probably come close to reaching that mark again this year.
Stearns County will have extended hours for those who want to vote absentee. The auditor-treasurer's office will be open this Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm, and will be open until 5 pm next Monday--the day before the election.
