Minnesota state law prevents changing early presidential votes

ST. PAUL, MN-- With news that Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has dropped out of the presidential race, state officials are reminding Minnesotans about a change to the law that prevents early voters from being able to request a new ballot.

Minnesota's Secretary of State Steve Simon tweeted the reminder Monday afternoon, shortly after Klobuchar's announcement.

According to the Minneapolis "Your City, Your Vote" website, "voters who cast a ballot early may request a replacement ballot to change their vote up until seven days before the Presidential Primary."

Any candidates who have dropped out of the race will appear on the ballot even if they dropped out of the presidential race before March 3.

Early voting in Minnesota opened 46 days before the primary election.
