Minnesota is frequently at or near the top when it comes to voter turnout, and 2020 looks no different.
Communities across Minnesota have reported impressive, sometimes record-breaking voter turnouts. Earlier in the day, Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon said Minnesota is "poised to do very well" in terms of voter turnout this year, noting the state will likely be near the top among other states.
As of Tuesday morning, when just counting absentee ballots (that includes mail-in only precincts), 1,846,668 ballots had been accepted. That's 62-62% of the total 2016 voter turnout statewide, Simon said. (More on statewide voter turnout data below.)
