A Message from the Elections Division of the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office
The start of the period prior to the Nov. 3 general election for people to vote absentee by mail opens Friday, Sept. 18. The Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office wants those individual who have already submitted absentee ballot applications to know that staff will be getting ballots out in the mail starting next week.
The office has received a high volume of calls asking where the ballots are. To date, Wright County has received more than 13,000 absentee ballot requests and staff in the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office, as well as eight cities in the county that do their own absentee balloting, will be assigned to get the ballots out as quickly as possible to those who have already had their applications approved.
Due to the volume of absentee ballots, the Elections Division asks that residents be patient. The ballots will be on the way starting next week.
