Answer Man: Ballots in the mail? Changes for voters in Mower County 

I recently received a long and somewhat involved email from a faithful reader who had an important question for me: Why did some voters in cities and townships in Mower County receive ballots in the mail this year instead of visiting a polling place as they had during the last election? The reader, who told me he lived in Grand Meadow Township in Mower County, said both he and his wife received what he referred to as absentee ballots in the mail. He said he didn't realize until Aug. 13, when he called the county auditor's office and learned the township had recently switched to mail-in voting, that those ballots were his only way of voting in the primary.
