You can vote an absentee ballot in person. The easiest way to vote absentee is to cast an absentee ballot in person at your county auditor’s office and in many cases your city or township clerk’s office, starting 46 days prior to Election Day (June 25). When there, you fill out an “absentee ballot request form” explaining why you need an absentee ballot.  Then, the clerk will give you an election ballot on the spot and you can vote.  Your completed ballot is taken by the clerk and returned to the election office in a secure envelope.

This option is available on weekdays during business hours. In addition, the county auditor’s office must be open for absentee balloting from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Saturday before the election and until 5 p.m. on the day before the election.

Contact your county auditor for more information–find contact information using the Election Official Directory.

Or you can vote absentee entirely by mail. You may have an absentee ballot sent to you by mail.  You must first send a completed Absentee Ballot Application to your county auditor by mail, fax, or email (print off the application, sign it, scan it, and attach to an email as a .pdf) within 46 days of the election. Your ballot will arrive within a day or two of your application being received. An absentee ballot application can be downloaded from http://www.sos.state.mn.us/index.aspx?page=211

Your completed absentee ballot must be received by your county auditor by Election Day, or it will not be counted. Follow the instructions that come with the ballot.
