What is an absentee ballot?
Quite simply, it is a ballot that you are able to cast without actually going to your voting location on Election Day.
As a resident of Minnesota, you can vote via absentee ballot if any of the following apply:
• Absence from your voting precinct on election day
• Illness or disability
• You are serving as an election judge in another precinct
• Religious discipline, observance, or Holiday
• Eligible emergency declared by the Governor
From June 25th to August 9th Minnesotans have the opportunity to vote via absentee ballot for the state primary which is held on August 10th.
From September 17th to November 1st Minnesotans will have the opportunity to vote via absentee ballot for the State General Election which is held on November 2nd.
You can visit the Minnesota Secretary of State website for more information on absentee voting.
