ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD) – The Minnesota Secretary of State’s office says it’s “highly likely” the January 17th start of early voting in the presidential primary will be delayed, because of a lawsuit challenging that only President Trump’s name is on the Republican primary ballot.

“People in Minnesota don’t care about early voting if it’s a one candidate race,” said Attorney Erick Kaardal. “So until we get the ballot straight, no one should be voting.”

Kaardal calls Minnesota’s presidential primary “a very stupid system” which is “unconstitutional because political party chairs shouldn’t be in control of who is on the… ballot.”

A spokesman for the Secretary of State says that office does not comment on pending litigation.
