Announcement: News flash! Don't mail your ballots--drop them off

Calendar Icon


Description

if you have not yet mailed in your absentee ballot, DON'T. Instead drop it off in person at your nearest drop-off ballot site.

Minnesota's one-week extension for the receipt of absentee ballots was just challenged in court. That, and recent Supreme Court rulings, have led to new guidance from Minnesota's election officials.

The best thing to do if that ballot is still sitting on your kitchen table is to take it to your county elections office.  Nicollet and Blue Earth counties both have drive up options for ballot drop off.  In Nicollet County, it is on the Mulberry side of the courthouse.  In Blue Earth County, it is at the old courthouse in Mankato or at the old MRCI building on Map Drive. https://www.blueearthcountymn.gov/431/Voting-Early-In-Person-or-By-Mail

If you mailed your ballot in some time ago, you can track it here: https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/AbsenteeBallotStatus.aspx    

Please share this information and stay tuned.
