Absentee voting begins Sept. 23 for the statewide general election on Nov. 8.
You may request an absentee ballot, complete it according to the enclosed instructions and return it in the envelopes provided. Absentee ballots must arrive by Election Day.
Absentee voting is one of three ways to cast your ballot. You can also vote early during the week before Election Day.
In early voting, you cast your ballot and feed it directly into a ballot counter at the Dakota County Administration Center in Hastings or at your city hall. Early voting is available 8 a.m. Nov. 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 7.
Voters can also cast their ballot in person on Election Day. Polling place hours are 7 a.m.–8 p.m.
