- If you haven’t already mailed your absentee ballot, don’t. To ensure it’s received by November 3, take your ballot to your local drop off. Visit mnvotes.org for locations and election details. A new court ruling means that absentee ballots received after November 3 could be invalidated. This is different from previous messaging that Minnesota absentee ballots must be postmarked by November 3 and received by November 10 to be counted.
- If you already voted from home, you can track your absentee ballot online to see when it is received.
This election will be different due to the pandemic, and we need to be patient. Close races may not be called on election night. This is a sign that our democracy is working and that every vote is being carefully counted.
Southwest Initiative Foundation signed on to this Call to Uphold Election Integrity and Democracy in Minnesota. Regardless of election outcomes in our local communities, state and at the federal level, let’s come together as neighbors, commit to working across differences, and support one another as we move forward during Election Week and beyond.
Be sure to use your voice and vote by November 3!
