More Absentee Voting Options Available This Year
Minnesota voters have more options than ever for casting a ballot in the general election, making it more convenient for those who can’t make it to the polls on November 8.
For the first time, Minnesota residents can start casting absentee ballots in this year’s general election on September 23 without providing an excuse for why they can’t get to a polling place.
Minnesotans will also be able to vote early beginning seven days before Election Day. They will be able to fill out ballots at elections offices and feed them into voting machines as they typically would.
Minnesota led the nation in voter turnout in the last presidential election, with more than 76 percent of eligible voters casting ballots.
