Absentee voting starts today - Sept. 20

Voters who will not be able to vote at their polling place on Election Day are eligible to vote by absentee ballot. Voting absentee can be done in person at City Hall, or entirely by mail. If a voter chooses to cast an absentee ballot in person, that can be done during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or on the final two Saturdays before Election Day, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. City Hall is located at 350 South 5th Street.  Voters should come to the Elections and Voter Services office in room 1B to complete their ballots.

To vote absentee by mail, voters may request a ballot now. Ballots will be mailed to voters submitting a request, and will include everything a voter needs to send back a completed ballot, including postage. Visit vote.minneapolismn.gov/voters/absentee for absentee ballot applications in multiple languages that can be printed out and returned by mail, email, or fax to request a ballot. Also online is a link to the Secretary of State’s absentee ballot lookup tool to follow the status of an absentee ballot that has been submitted.  

Voters who are not pre-registered can still vote absentee. If voting by mail, voter registration materials will be sent with the absentee ballot for voters who are not already registered.
