A list of accepted absentee and mail ballots in state primaries or general elections, or special elections for state and federal offices, is available for a fee. (Minnesota Statutes 203B.12)
Please note: This information is only available to registered Minnesota voters, and may only be used for purposes related to elections, political activities, or law enforcement. (Minnesota Statutes 201.091)
To request accepted absentee ballot data for the 2018 State Primary or General Election, use the Accepted Absentee Ballot List Request Form. Return the form and payment in-person or by mail to: Office of the Secretary of State, Voter Registration Lists, 60 Empire Drive, Suite 100, Saint Paul, MN 55103.
To request accepted absentee ballot data for elections that are NOT federal or state elections, contact the jurisdiction (for example, city or school district) that is administering absentee or mail balloting for the election.
Reports covering the whole state are $46. Reports covering any area within the state are $30.
You may pay with check, money order, or cash (in-person only--do not send cash in the mail). Credit card payment is not accepted at this time.
Orders are delivered via email. Orders will be ready between 1 and 10 business days after receiving the order.
Reports come in comma-delimited text format which can be opened in most spreadsheet and database programs. Users are responsible for having the necessary software and technical knowledge to access this data. The report will be current as of the time it is run.
Note that the names of voters whose absentee ballot has not been accepted is not public information until the close of voting on election day.
