203B.25 ELECTION DAY SPECIAL PROCEDURES.

Subdivision 1. Death of voter.

If the election judges receive proof that a voter who has returned an absentee ballot as provided in sections 203B.16 to 203B.27 has died before the time when voting is scheduled to begin on election day, the ballot of that voter shall be returned by the election judges with the rejected ballots. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, the counting of the absentee ballot of a deceased voter shall not invalidate the election.

Subd. 2. Voting more than once.

If a voter whose application has been recorded under section 203B.19 casts a ballot in person on election day, an absentee ballot from that voter must not be counted. If more than one return envelope is received from a voter whose application has been recorded under section 203B.19, the ballots in the return envelope bearing the latest date must be counted and the uncounted ballots must be returned by the election judges with the rejected ballots.
