Updates

  • Absentee Update

    Important Update from Chisago County:

    ABSENTEE BALLOTS MUST BE IN THE COUNTY OFFICE BY ELECTION DAY TO BE COUNTED.

    Next Steps for Voters

    Voters should no longer place their absentee ballot in the mail. Instead, voters have several options to ensure their vote is counted in the November general election:

    • Voters who have already put their ballot in the mail can track their ballot at http://www.mnvotes.org/track. If their ballot has not yet been received the voter can vote in-person in either by absentee, or at their polling place on Election Day.
    • Voters can deliver their ballots to their county election office by hand (or have someone they trust hand-deliver it for them).
    • Voters can cast their vote in person with an absentee ballot at their local election office up until November 2, 2020.

    Options for absentee delivery to our office:

    • Mail or Package Delivery Service – must arrive by 8 p.m. on election day
    • In-Person – A voter can drop off their own absentee ballot to the County office until 3 p.m. on election day
    • Agent Return – A voter can ask someone else to return their sealed absentee ballot to the County office (must be known to the voter and be at least 18).  They can only drop off ballots for up to 3 people.  They will be required to provide ID and sign for the drop off.  It has to be received in the County office by 3 p.m. on election day.

    From Secretary of State’s Office:

    Carson/Lucero Litigation The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit has overruled the state approved consent decree extending the deadline for submitting an absentee and mail ballots. The consent decree changed the deadline from requiring absentee and mail ballots to be received by Election Day to being postmarked on or before election day and received within the next seven days. The Court of Appeals ruling means absentee and mail ballots must be received by Election Day in order to be counted.
