Absentee Voting

How to vote early by absentee ballot

Voters may apply to vote by absentee ballot for any election held in Minnesota conducted under state law. For state elections, voters may apply online through the Minnesota state voter portal, or find an application online to print.

For all election related applications and information, voters may also contact the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office, 303 Minnesota Avenue West, PO Box 3000, Walker MN  56484, by calling 218-547-7260, email to cass.voter@co.cass.mn.us, or stop in. In-person absentee voting is also available at designated locations for state elections.

Voters making application through the mail are encouraged to allow ample mailing time to receive the ballot and mail it back so that it is received on or before election day. Completed absentee ballots can be returned to the Auditor-Treasurer's Office by the voter or by a designated agent of the voter no later than 3 p.m. on election day. An agent must be at least 18 years old and may only return ballots for up to three voters per election. The agent must show identification and sign a record of ballots delivered.

Absentee ballots cast for statewide elections may be tracked on-line by the voter to verify the status of their ballot. Registered voters residing in mail ballot precincts will receive a ballot through the mail automatically for all statewide elections. Voters not pre-registered that live in mail ballot precincts may register with and vote by absentee ballot.
