Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed the Uniform Electronic Wills Act yesterday, allowing wills to be completed electronically instead of in writing. This will make Minnesota the eleventh electronic-will state on August 1, 2023.
The bill will incorporate electronic wills into the state probate code by redefining terms rather than legislation distinct from the preexisting statute.

Special thanks to Adam J. Hirsch (Professor of Law at the University of San Diego School of Law) for bringing this to my attention.
