The time for voters to decide who they want representing them in local, county, state and federal elected offices has begun and will continue until the polls close on the general election at 8 p.m. Nov. 8.

Absentee voting for the Nov. 8 general election started Friday, Sept. 23. Voters who wish to vote early may come to the Crow Wing County Historic Courthouse on Laurel Street in Brainerd during regular business hours.

Residents can vote by absentee ballot in person at the Elections Office on the second floor at 326 Laurel St. in Brainerd.

For county residents who have already applied for an absentee ballot, those ballots will go in the mail by Sept. 29. Voters who live in a mail ballot-only precinct will have their ballots mailed on Sept. 30. Voters can visit https://mnvotes.gov to apply for a ballot or track the status of a ballot.

In-person voting hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until Nov. 7. Additional voting hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 3 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 5.

For more information, call Crow Wing County Elections at 218-824-1051 or email Elections@crowwing.us.

For those who wish to vote in person but have already requested an absentee ballot by mail or live in a mail precinct, wait for the mail ballot to arrive prior to coming in to vote in person. Voters should bring the mailed ballot with them when possible.

Voters must be registered to vote in Minnesota and registrations must be updated whenever a voter's name or address changes or if a voter does not vote at least once during a four-year period. Voters can check their registration status and register or update their status online at mnvotes.gov. Minnesota does allow voters to register at the polls on Election Day, but voters must provide identification and proof of residence if they are registering at the polls. Information on the acceptable proofs of residence can also be found at mnvotes.gov.
