Wright County election officials provide resources for absentee, mail-in voting

WRIGHT COUNTY – The Tuesday, Nov. 3 general election is a little more than two months away, and many Minnesotans are looking at the options for voting – from showing up at the polls on Election Day as has been the common practice of voters for centuries, to voting early as an absentee voter to voting by mail.

In the state’s primary election earlier this month, Minnesota shattered records for absentee and mail-in voting and the expectation is that, in November’s general election, there will be another record-breaking number of voters using the absentee voting and mail-in options.

Wright County elections officials want residents to be aware of several resources that help explain the process of voting by mail, absentee voting and the procedures used to submit your early voting ballot.

Here are some links that can assist voters in that process:
