Absentee voting is available for the 2021 March Township Elections, which be conducted Tuesday, March 9.
A total of 15 of Wright County’s 18 townships will hold their elections in March – Albion, Buffalo, Chatham, Cokato, Corinna, Franklin, French Lake, Maple Lake, Marysville, Middleville, Monticello, Rockford, Stockholm, Victor and Woodland. The other three townships (Clearwater, Silver Creek and Southside) have transitioned to November elections in even-numbered years.
The Wright County Finance and Taxpayer Services Office is administering absentee voting and can accept absentee ballots during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday). In addition, the office will be open expanded hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 6 and until 5 p.m. Monday, March 8. Given delays in mail service in recent months, it is preferred that those looking to vote absentee do so in person, but the mail-in option remains available.
