Absentee, Early Voting for August Primary Begins Today

A Message from Wright County Elections:

Today (Friday, June 24) is the first day of Minnesota’s 46-day absentee voting period which leads up to the Tuesday, August 9 Primary Election. The Wright County election office and participating cities will begin mailing ballots to voters who have requested them. In-person absentee voting is now available at the Wright County Government Center and select municipalities administering absentee voting. Please see below for information on how to request an absentee ballot or to vote early in-person at your local election office.

As a reminder, Minnesota election law permits you to vote for candidates of only one political party in a state primary. Do not mark votes in more than one party column. Voters are also reminded to flip their ballot over to vote non-partisan and school district races.

Anyone can go to to check their eligibility, register to vote, or to locate their county or city election office.


The easiest way to request an absentee ballot to vote by mail is to visit the Secretary of State’s online absentee ballot application page. There you can request an absentee ballot for both the primary and general election. You may also download a copy of the absentee ballot application and either email it to or mail it to:

Wright County Finance and Taxpayer Services

3650 Braddock Ave. NE

Suite 1400

Buffalo, MN 55313


The Wright County Elections team will be serving all eligible Wright County voters who wish to vote early at the Taxpayer Services counter located inside of the Wright County Government Center.  It is important to note that the Wright County Government Center has moved to its new location.  The address for the new government center is:

Wright County Government Center

3650 Braddock Avenue NE

Buffalo, MN 55313

If you live in one of the following cities, you may vote early in-person at your City Hall. Please note that the cities listed below can only service their own residents. We suggest that you verify your polling location (MN Poll Finder) ahead of time before visiting a local vote center to guarantee service.

The following cities are offering in-person absentee voting.  Please contact your local clerk to verify hours of operation – Albertville, Delano, Hanover, Howard Lake, Monticello, Otsego and St. Michael.

*City of Buffalo no longer offers in-person absentee voting at Buffalo City Hall. Buffalo residents wanting to vote early in-person should visit the Wright County Government Center.
