Voting Early (absentee)

Early voting (absentee) for the 2022 State Primary Election begins Friday, June 24 and continues through Monday, August 8.  

Voters may request an absentee ballot application online through the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State or print and fill out a paper application and return it to IGH City Hall.

Voters may vote by absentee ballot at City Hall:

  • During regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) 
  • City Hall will remain open until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26 and Thursday, August 4 for in-person ballot drop off. 
  • If mailed back, completed absentee ballots must be received (not postmarked) by Tuesday, August 9.

The 24-hour ballot drop box that was in place for the 2020 election will NOT be offered for the 2022 election cycle. Absentee ballots mailed to a voter must be returned via U.S. mail or brought into City Hall prior to 3 p.m. on Election Day for the primary (Aug. 9, 2022) and general election (Nov. 8, 2022). 

Additionally, for those unable to come inside City Hall for early voting, or into their polling place on Election Day, due to mobility limitations or other issues, the City offers curbside voting and agent delivery.
