'Honor a vet'
Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie has launched his "Vote in Honor of a Veteran" program.
The initiative is meant to increase voter participation this fall and recognize military veterans.
Participants can seek a button from Ritchie's office and write on the button the name of a veteran they want to honor. They are being encouraged to wear the buttons in advance of the fall election and when they go to vote Nov. 4.
