Ritchie’s stop in Pine County is one of many he is making throughout the state to talk to election officials on how to improve Minnesota’s voting system.

The Secretary of State told the group he appreciated the work they did during the general election and the U.S. Senate recount. Ritchie says despite the continuing controversy over the Senate seat, the past election was one of the best in Minnesota history.
