These rules will bring conformity to MN elec- tion procedures and recent state and federal legislative changes relevant to the fed- eral Help America Vote Act. "This is great news for MN voters," said Kiffmeyer. %re have a longstanding tra- dition of being at the fore- front in election administra- tion in our state, and once again, we are proving to be a leader in improving elec- tions by conforming to the federal Help America Vote Act ." 'he Help America Vote Act is the most significant election improvement legis- lation since the Civil Rights era in the '60s, and these rules will help us to imple- ment the law in a smooth, consistent and uniform way across our state and from one level of election to anoth- er," said Kiffmeyer. 'hese rules provide for county elec- tion officials across the state to administer processes in the same way, and for all voters to be treated equally across the state. Remember, inconsistency and unequal treatment of voters was the crux of the problem in Florida in 2000."
