Absentee Voting

Absentee ballots are available 46 days before an election: starting March 20 (8:00 am to 4:30 pm on regular business days) and continuing through May 4 at 4:30 pm. To vote absentee, voters must first submit an application. When they submit their application, they will receive a ballot which they can then submit for counting. Because the election is primarily being handled by the Scott County Auditor, all Scott, Le Sueur, and Rice County residents will submit absentee ballots to the Scott County Government Center.

Residents can vote absentee by following these steps:

  1. (pdf) Download the absentee ballot application and submit it to the contact information on the form.
  2. You will receive your ballot by mail to place your vote.
  3. Submit your ballot using one of the following methods...
