Yes, Edina residents may drop off their completed absentee ballot at our new drop-off site located in the parking lot of Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St. You can stay in your car.
Enter off 50th Street and follow the signs to the drop-off tent. You will exit onto Grange Road.
Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
Due to the high turnout, there may be a wait. Please do the following before you arrive to speed the process for you and everyone else:
Important note: The ballot drop-off closes at 3 p.m. Nov. 3.
You can track your ballot online at mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/AbsenteeBallotStatus.aspx.
Mail your completed absentee ballot in time to ensure a Nov. 3 postmark and that it arrives at the Hennepin County elections office by Nov. 10.
You do not need a stamp. The return envelope is already postage-paid.
Make sure to follow all instructions that came with your ballot before mailing it.
If you are already a registered voter, you do not need a witness for the Nov. 3 General Election. However, please put both your driver’s license number and the last four digits of your social security number on your Signature Envelope and make sure to sign it to ensure all that information matches what’s on file from your registration.
If you haven’t registered before, you will need a witness to sign the Signature Envelope where indicated.
