Nicollet County’s Public Services Manager says she has fielded some questions about applications to register to vote or to vote absentee that have been mailed out by several independent organizations.

Jaci Kopet says while the forms were not distributed by Nicollet County, it is fine for people to fill them out if they choose to vote by absentee ballot for the General Election.

However, she also says some in Minnesota have reported getting phone calls asking for personal information to vote absentee or to register to vote, and that’s not fine. Kopet is urging people never to give such information to such callers.
