Early voting for MN Aug. 9 primary election starts Friday. What to know.

Minnesota residents who want to vote early in the state’s Aug. 9 primary election can start casting ballots Friday, June 24.

By law, voters can cast ballots by mail or in person up to 46 days before an election. If you want to vote by mail from home, go to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website (www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting) and click on “Other ways to vote,” where you can apply for an absentee ballot.

You must have a witness present — either a registered voter or a notary — as you complete your ballot and vote. Return the completed absentee ballot to your county election office by mail, fax or email.

Ballots for the 2022 primary election will be mailed starting Friday, June 24. You can apply for a ballot any day except Election Day. Your returned ballot must be received by Election Day or it will not be counted.

You may also drop off your mail-in ballot in person at the local elections office that mailed it to you. Those ballots must be returned by 3 p.m. on Election Day.

You can track the status of your ballot and make sure it was received and counted on the Secretary of State’s website.
