Absentee Voting

Any voter may vote early by using an absentee ballot. You may submit your absentee ballot by mail or in person at City Hall. Absentee voting will be available during the following dates: 
 
                         Primary Election - June 24, 2016 to August 8, 2016
                    General Election - September 23, 2016 to November 7, 2016

How Do I Vote Absentee/Early by Mail?

 
First, you must submit a completed application to receive an absentee ballot. You can submit your application by mail, email, fax, or drop it off at City Hall.

Use the online absentee ballot request (available for federal and state elections, only) or submit a paper absentee ballot application to the City using one of the methods below:

    Mail:    City of Maplewood/Elections
                1830 County Road B East
                Maplewood, MN 55109
    Email:  elections@maplewoodmn.gov
    Fax:     651-249-2957

Once your application has been processed, an absentee ballot packet will be mailed to you via First Class Mail. If you apply before absentee voting begins, your ballot will be mailed to you 46 days prior to the election. If you apply within 46 days of the election, your ballot will be mailed to you the same day your application is received. 

Once you complete your absentee ballot, you may mail your ballot back or drop it off at City Hall. If you are mailing your ballot back to us, please ensure it is received no later than on Tuesday, election day. If you are dropping off your ballot, or having someone else drop off your ballot for you, please make sure it is received at City Hall no later than 3:00pm on Tuesday, election day.
