Voters Have Options for Voting Absentee and In Person for the November Elections

Amid concerns as to whether votes are going to be counted properly in the coming election and if the U.S. Postal Service will be able to handle the volume of ballots expected, there are a couple of simpler options for those who want to be sure their ballots are counted.

You may have already noticed people wearing “I Voted” stickers, because in-person absentee voting opened Friday, Sept. 18 and many have already taken that avenue to complete their voting process.

In-person voting can be done at the Wright County Government Center or at City Hall for eight Wright County cities – Albertville, Buffalo, Delano, Hanover, Howard Lake, Monticello, Otsego and St. Michael. Note that if you use the City Hall option, you must live in that jurisdiction. For the full listing of addresses, phone numbers and open hours, click here: 

In addition, there is a secure Ballot Drop Box at the north entrance of the Wright County Government Center that those who wish to return their ballot can do so contact-free.

With a record number of people anticipated to be doing Absentee Voting by mail or in-person, the number of people using these options will increase as we get closer to the Nov. 3 election, so voters are being made aware that these alternate options to the standard Election Day polling place voting are in place now and can be utilized.
