To reduce the amount of time when voting, register to vote now by going to https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/VoterRegistration/VoterRegistrationMain.aspx.  You can also check your registration to ensure everything is accurate by visiting https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/VoterStatus.aspx.

May 13, 2020 marked the first date for voters to request absentee ballots for the state primary and general elections.  With Scott County’s roughly 90,000 voters, and with COVID-19 infections rising daily, we are urging voters to get out and vote… but do so by mail.  This will ensure you are safe, keep the election judges safe, and make sure that social distancing does not become an issue.  You can make an application to receive your state primary and state general ballots by visiting  https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/ABRegistration/ABRegistrationStep1.aspx.

For the Primary Election, June 26th is the earliest we can start mailing out ballots. 
For the General Election, September 18th is the earliest we can start mailing out ballots.
