Voting by mail is a two step process in Minnesota. Step 1: Request your ballot NOW. The deadline for your application to be received is Nov. 2nd - but you should request by mail well before then. Step 2: Complete and return your ballot ASAP.
You don’t need an excuse to request an absentee ballot. You can vote by mail for any reason.
After you complete your ballot, sign the ballot return envelope.

Click here to track your ballot. Your state offers electronic, barcode ballot tracking services so you can make sure your ballot gets counted. If there is something wrong with the signature on your ballot, the state is required to contact you and give you options to remedy your ballot. If there are more than five days before the election, your clerk will mail you a new ballot. If you are within five days of the election, your clerk will provide step-by-step instructions for what you need to do, which usually means voting early at their office.
If you have not used your absentee ballot and would like to vote in person, go to your polling site and vote in person on Election Day. Minnesota requests that you do not bring your unused absentee ballot with you to your polling site.
