Absentee Voting, Early Voting and Election Day
In Minnesota, voters do not have to wait until Election Day to vote – they can vote early or by requesting an absentee ballot by mail.
Leading up to a Lakeville Area school district election, absentee ballot applications are available online or at Lakeville City Hall. To vote by mail, voters must complete an absentee ballot application, return the completed application to the location listed on the form in person, by fax or as a scanned attachment to an email. Your absentee ballot materials will be mailed to the address indicated on the application. Absentee ballots must be received on or before Election Day. Any ballot that is received after 3 p.m. on Election Day will not be opened or counted
Voters may vote early in person. District residents who live in Dakota County can vote early at the Lakeville City Hall during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during select dates before an election. District residents who live in Scott County can vote early at Scott County Government Center during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during select dates before an election.
