How do I obtain an absentee ballot?

Voters no longer need a reason for voting prior to Election Day.  You can vote absentee either in person or through the mail.  

You can apply online for an absentee ballot by completing the online Absentee Ballot Request. Once you have completed the online application, the ballot will be mailed to the address requested.

You can also request an absentee ballot application by calling the Ramsey County Elections Office at 651-266-2171, and the application will be mailed to you. Complete & return the paper application to the Ramsey County Elections Office as soon as possible so that there is sufficient time to mail the ballot to you.  

In-person absentee voting is available Monday-Friday during business hours at:

Little Canada City Center - 515 Little Canada Road E., Little Canada, MN  55117

Ramsey County Elections Office - 90 W. Plato Blvd, St. Paul, MN  55107
