Mail Absentee Voting

To vote by mail, you must complete and return an absentee ballot application to have an absentee ballot mailed to you. You do not need to be registered to apply.

For your ballot to count, remember this important information:

  • Read the instructions that come with your ballot.
  • You will need a witness when you vote and complete your ballot. The witness can be either a registered Minnesota voter or a notary.
  • Mail the ballot and forms back right away after you finish. For the 2020 State General Election absentee ballots returned via mail must be USPS postmarked on or before election day (Nov. 3, 2020) and received by Nov. 10, 2020.
