Absentee voting for the August Primary will start in Rice County on June 26, 2020. Due to COVID-19, Rice County election officials are urging voters to vote by mail to ensure the safety of voters and poll workers. Please consider applying for an absentee ballot to be mailed to you for the upcoming election(s). Online applications are available. https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/ABRegistration/ABRegistrationStep1.aspx
Due to social distancing challenges to in-person absentee voting, longer voting times may result. For voters who do choose to absentee vote in person at the Rice County Government Services Building or Northfield City Hall, we ask that you bring your own pen and face mask and limit non-essential visitors accompanying you, including children, if at all possible.
