A message from Wright County Elections Division

Options for Returning Absentee/Mail Ballots

Voters have multiple options for returning their absentee or mail ballot.

* Return it in the first-class, postage-paid envelope included with their ballot. Ballots must be postmarked on or before November 3, 2020 to be counted.

* Voters can drop their ballot off in the Official Ballot Drop Box outside the north entrance of the Wright County Government Center.

* Voters can drop their ballot off in person at the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office on the second floor of the Government Center during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday) as well as special open of hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, October 31, 2020.

* Voters can designate an agent to return their ballot for them. Agents may not deliver ballots for more than three voters in this election and will have to show identification and sign an affidavit of agent delivery when dropping ballot off in person for others.

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.
