Mail Absentee Voting

To vote by mail, you must complete and return an absentee ballot application to have an absentee ballot mailed to you. You do not need to be registered to apply.

For your ballot to count, remember this important information:

  • Read the instructions that come with your ballot.
  • You will need a witness when you vote and complete your ballot. The witness can be either a registered Minnesota voter or a notary.
  • Mail the ballot and forms back right away after you finish. Your ballot will not count if it is received after Election Day. You can also return your ballot in person to Carver County Government Center no later than 3:00 p.m. on Election Day.
