In Minnesota, voters do not have to wait until Election Day to vote – they can vote early with an absentee ballot. Voters for the school district election can absentee vote in person at Lakeville City Hall or by requesting an absentee ballot by mail.
Absentee ballots for Special Elections are available at Lakeville City Hall, 20195 Holyoke Avenue. Voters must complete an Absentee Ballot Application. Return the completed application to City of Lakeville Elections. Your absentee ballot materials will be mailed to the address indicated on the application. Applications may be returned by mail, fax or as a scanned attachment to an email. Voters may cast an absentee ballot in person at City Hall. City offices are open for absentee voting during regular business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. City Hall is open for absentee voting until 5:00 p.m. on the Monday before Election Day.
Any questions regarding absentee voting should be directed to the City of Lakeville at 952-985-4400.
Absentee ballots must be received on or before Election Day to be counted. Any ballot that is received after 3:00 p.m. on Election Day will not be opened.
