Eligible voters may begin casting their absentee ballots starting Friday, September 23rd.
This is the first presidential election year where Minnesotans don’t need an excuse to vote absentee. Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon says that means “there’s no longer a requirement for a voter to give a reason or excuse for voting absentee. We can all do it just because we want to do it and it’s no one’s business anymore why.”
Voters may request an absentee ballot in person at their local election office, or they may request a ballot be mailed to them. Voters may request a ballot even if they’re not registered to vote–a voter registration application will be provided with the ballot.
