Early and absentee voting

Bloomington residents can vote early by mail for the general election by submitting an absentee ballot. To get started, submit an absentee ballot application at blm.mn/absenteeballot or call 612-348-5151. Early voting begins on Friday, September 18.

Voters will receive an absentee ballot and a postage-paid envelope to return their ballot. For the 2020 State General Election, absentee ballots must be postmarked on or before election day, November 3, and received by Hennepin County by November 10.

If you don't think your ballot will be received in time using regular mail, you may choose to pay for an express delivery service.

The general election is Tuesday, November 3. The state of Minnesota does not have a provision to cancel elections during a pandemic. The City will employ CDC guidelines for polling place safety. For more information about voting, visit blm.mn/vote or call 952-563-8729.
