Absentee Ballot Information
The law allows any eligible voter to vote early by absentee ballot. Voters can request an absentee ballot even if they are not registered to vote — a voter registration application will be provided with their ballot. Only the voter (not a friend or family member) may pick up or complete an absentee ballot.
To vote by absentee ballot for the Nov. 8 election, voters must complete and return an application for an absentee ballot. Download the absentee ballot application and return it to the Clay County Auditor, P.O. Box 280, Moorhead, MN 56561-0280. Absentee ballots are available 46 days prior to election day — from Sept. 23 through Nov. 7, 2016.
