With two months until the 2018 General Election on Tuesday, November 6, voters can begin preparing for Election Day to save time and to ensure their vote is counted.
Voters should register as soon as possible. The quickest option is online at www.mnvotes.org. Voters can also register in-person at the County Elections Office.
All registered voters in vote-by-mail precincts will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. Ballots will arrive shortly after September 21. Voters in mail ballot precincts that are not registered will need to either register, request an absentee ballot, or vote in-person at the County Elections Office.
Voters can apply for a ballot to be mailed to them by visiting www.mnvotes.org or by requesting an application from the county. Any voter can vote by absentee ballot for any reason.
Early In-Person Voting
Both registered and non-registered voters in either mail ballot or live precincts can vote early in-person at their County Elections Office, which corresponds to the county in which they reside, as soon as ballots become available no earlier than September 21. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday plus the Saturday prior to the election from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
