Here in Minnesota, you don’t have to wait until Election Day to vote – you can vote early with an Absentee Ballot. You have two options: you can vote early in person, or vote early by mail.

If you decide to vote early in person, you can cast an absentee ballot at your local elections office. You can do this in the 46 days before Election Day. Visit mnvotes.org for hours and locations to find your elections office.

If you want to vote early by mail, you can apply to have an absentee ballot be sent to you by mail. You must return your ballot by Election Day. To apply for your absentee ballot, you need to do the following:

1. Apply for a ballot at mnvotes.org. Election officials will send voting materials when ballots are available.
2. When you receive your ballot, read the instructions carefully. Your ballot will not count if you do not complete all the forms.
3. If you are not registered to vote, you will get a registration application included in your voting materials. To register, show your witness one of the identification options listed in the instructions. Your witness must mark which for of ID you showed them on your signature envelope.
4. After you finish voting, mail the ballot and forms back right away. Your ballot will not count if it is received after Election Day as it is too late. You can also return your ballot in person to the elections office that sent your ballot.

If you want to track your ballot, visit mnvotes.org to track the status of your ballot and confirm that it was received and counted. All absentee ballots that were received on time and had all forms filled out and complete will be counted.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State by visiting mnvotes.org or calling 1-877-600-VOTE.
