It’s easy. You can apply online for a ballot — you don’t have to wait. As soon as your ballot is ready, Hennepin County will mail it to you. You can apply on the Secretary of State website at https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/ABRegistration/ABRegistrationStep1.aspx.
For your ballot to count, remember this important information:
- Read the instructions that come with your ballot carefully.
- Your signature envelope might have a box for a witness to complete and sign. Due to COVID19, there is no witness requirement for registered voters for the November 3, 2020 State General Election. Non-registered voters will still need a witness, to indicate their proof of residence.
- Mail the ballot and forms back right away after you finish. Your returned ballot must be postmarked on or before Election Day (November 3, 2020) and received by Hennepin County within the next seven calendar days (November 10). You may also drop off your ballot envelope in person at City Hall, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
