Yesterday the U.S. 8th Circuit Appeals Court reversed the consent decree of the Ramsey County Court which established the extension (postmarked by 11/3; received by 11/10) for returning an absentee ballot by mail.
Ballots must now be returned to the county elections office by Tuesday, November 3.
- The deadline to drop a ballot off in person is 3 p.m.; deadline for mail or delivery service is 8 p.m.
- Ballots arriving after November 3 — regardless of the postmark — will not be counted.
- If you have mailed back your absentee ballot, you can confirm the status by using the Secretary of State’s tracker or by contacting the county or city elections office to ask for the status of your absentee ballot
- If your ballot has not been accepted, you can vote in person, either voting early in person at the county Elections Office or an early voting site (click here to find an early voting site) or voting on November 3 at your polling place (click to find your Election Day polling place).
Your vote matters.
