Absentee/Early Voting

COVID-19 Information

Voters are encouraged to vote absentee by mail. If it is necessary to vote in person, you must wear a mask or face covering and stay 6 feet apart from others. Do not enter City Hall or polling places if you are sick.

Vote early by mail

Any voter may vote early or absentee instead of voting in-person at your polling place. 

Print and complete this absentee ballot application (PDF). Or call 952-826-0363 to request an application be mailed to you. The online application is not available for the school district election. 

Return the completed application to Hennepin County using one of these methods:

  • By mail: Hennepin County Elections Government Center, 300 S. 6th St., MC 012, Minneapolis, MN 55487-0012 
  • Email: hc.vote@hennepin.us 
  • Fax: 612-348-2151

You can expect to receive your ballot in the mail starting March 26. 

All voters are required to have a witness. You must show your witness your blank ballot, complete your ballot in private and all other steps. Then have your witness print their name, Minnesota street address and city, and sign their name on your signature envelope. If you are registering to vote, you must also show your witness your driver’s license or other authorized proof of where you live. Your witness must be a Minnesota Voter or a Notary Public. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this rule was temporarily changed for the 2020 election.
