ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Voters in Minnesota can log on and take a look at their ballot before election day.

The Minnesota Secretary of State’s office has launched a new tool on its website called “My Ballot.” Voters enter their address and see which candidates or referendum questions will be on their ballot this November.

Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says it will be an especially useful tool this year because of redistricting. Many people are finding themselves in a new precinct with a new polling place. The site also links to candidates’ websites.

KARE-TV says (http://tinyurl.com/9tpe7e3 ) the site also has tools to help people check their registration and track their absentee ballot.
