MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota: On Monday, May 24, 2010, Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie launched the Vote in Honor of a Veteran (VIHV) program as a continuation of his office's "commitment to promoting voter participation and honoring those who defend our democracy by serving in our armed forces."[1] The program asks only that a voter wear a little lapel button "throughout the election season bearing the name of a military veteran that symbolizes the voter's commitment to cast a ballot to honor the sacrifices the veteran made to secure the nation's freedom, including the right to vote."[2]

The buttons are available free of charge either through the secretary of state's website or by calling 651-201-1324.
