Join Siobhan Kierans Monday at 9 a.m., when she speaks with Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie about his past seven years in office, his career in politics, and the election and voting process. 

Secretary of State Ritchie partners with townships, cities and counties to organize elections for Minnesota’s  4 million eligible voters. The office operates the Statewide Voter Registration System and prepares the official roster of voters for every election.  It also accepts filings by candidates, trains local election officials, and conducts voter education and outreach programs.The office is responsible for reviewing and approving the filing of articles of incorporation and amendments for all businesses and nonprofit organizations in Minnesota. No easy matter, since the office is reporting steady new business growth from 2013 to 2014. It also processes all notary public applications, serves as the state’s central filing system for lien information related to the Uniform Commercial Code and also administers “Safe at Home”, an address confidentiality program designed to assist Minnesotans who fear for their safety.

All of this and more on TruthToTell Monday at 9 a.m. on KFAI.
