Absentee Voting

You no longer need a reason to vote by absentee.

For the General Election, September 18th is the earliest we can start mailing out ballots.  

If you voted in the Primary or were contacted by another participation organization, you may have already requested a ballot for the general. If you are unsure, please 
track the status of your Absentee Ballot. To do so please click here

In person absentee voting for the General Election will begin on September 18th at the Scott County Public Works Building 600 Country Trail E. Jordan, MN 55352. Voters that reside in the city limits of Shakopee, Savage, Prior Lake, or Jordan may go to their local city hall to absentee vote in person. All other cities and township voters wishing to vote in person would need to visit us at Public Works. 

If you are coming to the Public Works location please park in the south, small parking lot where the blue voting signs are and follow the yellow tape to the service door. PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE THRU THE SHOP.
