Absentee Voting, Early Voting and Election Day
In Minnesota, voters do not have to wait until Election Day to vote.
In Minnesota, you can vote with an absentee ballot starting on September 20 this year, 46 days before Election Day. Leading up to the election, absentee ballot applications are available online or at Lakeville City Hall. Voters may submit their absentee ballots at Lakeville City Hall during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. 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, Tuesday, November 5 will not be opened or counted.
