Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

Hospitalized or in a Nursing Home

The city clerk’s office will send out teams of election judges (poll workers) to nursing homes and hospitals during the 20 days preceding the election. They will distribute absentee ballots to residents of the facility and provide assistance if needed.

The election judges will only have ballots for the town or city where the hospital is located. Voters who are staying in a hospital outside of their town or city will need to apply for an absentee ballot in their home precinct. Voters also may ask someone they know to pick up and return an absentee ballot for them.
