Mail Ballot Precincts
Wright County has precincts in four cities that are mail ballot only – the portions of the Cities of Dayton and Hanover, the City of South Haven and Precinct 4 in the City of Buffalo. If you live in one these cities, ballots were automatically mailed to all registered voters in these precincts. Eligible voters in these precincts who are not currently registered will need to apply for an absentee ballot. You can apply online at www.mnvotes.org or by contacting the Wright County Elections Office at (763) 682-7692. The Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office serves as the polling place for the four mail ballot precincts on Election Day and will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
