Absentee Voting

You no longer need a reason to vote by absentee.

Absentee ballots are available 46 days prior to each election.

If you are in a hospital, nursing home, or other health care facility and are in need of assistance to absentee vote, contact the County Elections Department for further information.

If you are in the military or residing outside the territorial limits of the United States, you may vote by absentee ballot using the address where you last lived in Minnesota. A special application form is required. Your parent, spouse, brother, sister, or child at least 18 years of age may request a ballot for you.
