Brown County Auditor-Treasurer Jean Prochniak, who is also the county’s chief election official, urges voters who have not mailed in or returned absentee ballots to the AT office to deliver them in person soon. In light of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals decision on Thursday that orders state election officials to hold separate any mail-in ballots that arrive after Nov. 3, election officials are urging voters to deliver their ballots before Nov. 3 to make sure they are counted. The Appeals Court ruling overturns a state agreement that votes postmarked by Nov. 3 would still be counted if they arrive before Nov. 10. Prochniak said as of Thursday, Oct. 29, 78% of ballots sent out by the Brown County AT Office have been returned.
