Absentee ballots are available 45 days prior to the State Primary and General Elections. A completed absentee ballot application (PDF), must be received before a ballot can be issued to a voter. Absentee ballots must be returned to our office no later than 3:00 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.
Voters may also vote by absentee ballot in person during the 45 day absentee period at the Freeborn County Auditor-Treasurer's Office, 411 Broadway Ave. South, Albert Lea, MN. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. Also, the office is open the Saturday before the Primary and General elections from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for absentee voting.
