Event Details

Thanks to a law passed in 2014, Minnesotans have the opportunity to begin voting by mail or in person 46 days ahead of an Election Day. For the Aug. 14 primary, that day is June 29.

Prior to the law a person could vote early, but needed to provide an excuse as to why he or she could not vote on Election Day. With the new system, no excuse is needed. People no longer have to worry about wheels, work or weather when it comes to casting their ballot to make their voice heard.

Under no excuse absentee balloting, people have the option to vote by mail or in person. Instructions on how to vote by mail can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at mnvotes.org. People can also vote at their county courthouses during regular business hours. Voting is also available the weekend before the election, as well as the Monday before Election Day. For the primary that is Monday, Aug. 13. Many cities also offer the opportunity to vote in person.
