State is gearing up for highest voter turnout in 26 years
DETROIT LAKES - Minnesota could see the highest voter turnout in years this November, and state and local officials are doing what they can to be prepared, according to Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie.
"We're in the process of getting people ready for the biggest year -- 80 in '08," Ritchie said in an interview. "Eighty percent of eligible voters is what we expect for turnout in the 2008 general election."
