There is a Special Election in District 23B to fill the MN House of Representatives seat, vacated by Tony Cornish. District 23B covers parts of Watonwan, Blue Earth, Waseca and LeSueur counties. The Special Election will be held on Monday, Feb. 12, 2017. However, for those people who live in a mail-in ballot precinct and who are registered to vote, you will receive your general election ballot Friday, Feb. 2nd. Because this is a special election, your ballot should be returned by Tue. Feb. 6th, so it is received in time to be counted. Your ballot must also be completely filled out and witnessed to be counted. It can be witnessed by a friend, neighbor, relative, etc. Here is a list of mail-in ballot precincts: LaSalle, Nelson Twp, Riverdale Twp, Rosendale Twp, St. James Twp, Amboy, Beauford Twp, Butternut Valley Twp, Cambria Twp, Ceresco Twp, Danville Twp, Good Thunder, Judson Twp, Lincoln Twp, Mapleton Twp, Mcpherson Twp, Medo Twp, Pemberton, Pleasant Mound Twp, Sterling Twp, Vernon Center, Vernon Center Twp, and Elysian (Waseca county portion).
