For the past few months, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down, and it’s unclear when we’ll be able to safely congregate with our fellow Minnesotans again. We’ve adapted our workplaces, our schools, and our daily routines to respond to this crisis, and with a big election on the horizon, we have to adapt the way we vote, too.
Luckily, secure, accessible elections are second nature in Minnesota, and our progressive leaders have made it easy for us to exercise our civic duties from the safety of our homes through mail-in absentee voting.
That’s right: in Minnesota, you can securely fill out your ballot at home, stick it in the mailbox, and have your vote counted.
All you have to do is request an absentee ballot from the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office, wait for your ballot to come in the mail, follow the instructions, and mail it back. Simple as that. If you can order delivery online from your favorite restaurant, you can vote by mail.
And if you’re not registered to vote yet, you can do that on the Secretary of State’s website too!
Dozens of our neighbors in Wisconsin contracted the coronavirus after voting in-person for the presidential primary.
We can’t let that happen here.
So what are you waiting for? Request your absentee ballot right now, and together we’ll work to keep our communities safe and healthy.
