“Super Tuesday” in Minnesota

February 5, 2008

St. Paul, MN – It's "Super Tuesday," and voters in two dozen states, including Minnesota, will have their say in the Presidential selection process.

Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie expects a strong turnout at Republican, Democratic, and Minnesota Independence Party caucuses throughout the state.

"We expect over 100,000 people to go to the caucuses for the three major parties, and we expect this year to be a record year for all the parties throughout the state of Minnesota."

Ritchie says registration was to start at 6:30 this morning, and the formalities were to get underway at 7:00. He notes that voters can attend any party caucus, and all state residents who were 18 by election day can participate.

Ritchie says, while Minnesota isn't the largest state in the mix, its decisions will be felt.

"We're the 8th largest state participating. The national media has been calling every day to find out what time of the night will we be reporting results of our straw polls. The candidates are clearly interested, almost all have come through here over the past weekend. I think we will see Minnesota being very important in determining the final outcome of the Presidential process."

He says caucus sites are available online at www.sos.state.mn.us.
