Brown County Browser: Election update
It should be noted that ballots will be sent to absentee voters the week of October 5th. Voters who reside in mail ballot precincts are scheduled to receive their ballots around October 7th. Ballots are not forwardable, so if a voter in a mail precinct (all townships and the cities of Cobden, Evan and Hanska) plans to be away from their residence during the election period, an absentee ballot may be requested to be sent to a winter address.
Voter registration for the General Election is open now thru October 13th. Now is a good time to go to the Secretary of State’s website and register or contact your local election office at 507-233-6614 to request the registration form. Minnesota does allow same day registration, but having this taken care of prior to going to the polls will expedite the process. Anyone who will be 18 prior to the election is eligible to register.
