Minnesotans, get your ducks in a row about Minnesota’s 2018 legislative session

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota legislators are planning a series of events to push back against a new law that they say would make it harder for people to vote.

They’re holding a series in the Capitol Wednesday to call attention to the law and offer more information about how they’ll protect voting rights.

The Legislature is debating whether to expand the number of early voting days and how to handle provisional ballots.

The law would require early voting sites to open at least four hours before a state-sanctioned election and to offer provisional ballots that have not been verified by a poll worker.

Supporters say the measure will help prevent voter fraud and will make it easier to vote, and opponents say it will increase turnout.

Democrats and Republicans are competing for the support of voters.
