West Bank ward sees record absentee turnout

Residents in Cedar-Riverside, Seward and surrounding neighborhoods aren’t waiting until Election Day to cast their votes.  Minneapolis’ sixth ward has already broken its own record for absentee voting ahead of the Nov. 7 election. As of Oct. 19, 2,607 absentee ballots had been tallied in Ward 6, nearly 1,000 more than in 2013. Officials say the community has become more active due to greater political representation.
