Absentee Voting Information Available

The 2022 general elections are two weeks from today (Tuesday, Nov. 8), but those looking to avoid the line can vote absentee up until the day before Election Day.

Here are some tips on commonly asked questions about the 2022 elections that you should know, whether you plan to vote absentee or in person.

How to Request a Ballot

Request an absentee ballot online


Download a paper copy and email to or mail completed paper application to:

Finance and Taxpayer Services – Elections

Suite 1400

3650 Braddock Avenue NE

Buffalo, MN 55313

If you received a ballot in the mail but you would like to deliver it in-person to the Wright County, you may do so. You may also deliver up to three ballots from other Wright County voters to Wright County Elections. If you deliver ballots for other voters, please bring ID with you because your information will need to be recorded per Minnesota Statutes. 

Voters who vote in the cities listed below should visit their City Hall if they wish to cast an in-person absentee ballot. Verify your polling place by following this link.  Contact your local city clerk for voting hours.

Albertville – City Hall 5959 Main Ave NE, Albertville

Delano – City Hall 234 2nd St N, Delano

Hanover – City Hall 11250 5th St NE, Hanover

Howard Lake – City Hall 625 8th Ave, Howard Lake

Monticello – City Hall 505 Walnut St, Ste 1, Monticello

Otsego – City Hall 13400 90th St NE, Otsego

St. Michael – City Hall 11800 Town Center Dr NE, Ste 300, St. Michael

Track Your Ballot and Avoid Common Mistakes

Voters can track the status of their absentee ballot on the Secretary of State website.

Avoid the common mistakes listed below to ensure that your ballot is accepted and counted.

  • Don't leave the witness section blank or incomplete.  Witness signatures were not required in 2020 because of the pandemic, all absentee ballots for the 2022 election must be witnessed by an eligible Minnesota Voter or certified notary.
  • Read the instructions provided.
  • Use a blue or black ink pen to mark your ballot.
  • Use the same ID number (driver’s license or state ID or the last 4 digits of your Social Security number) on your signature envelope that you used on your application. It's a good idea to put down both numbers in both places.
  • Remember to sign the white signature envelope.
