Other Absentee Ballot Services

Special absentee balloting procedures are available to voters in hospital or health-care facilities. Call Le Sueur County Election Officials at 507-357-2251 for additional information.

Permanent Absentee Ballot Status

This status is reserved for those voters who will permanently not be able to go to their polling locations due to physical reasons. The voter applies to be on a list of voters who are automatically sent an application prior to each election cycle. A voter must return the completed application to receive a ballot.

Ongoing Absentee Ballot Status

A voter is allowed to apply for ongoing status if absence from the precinct is not a 1-time occurrence. This requires that the elections office send an absentee application to the voter prior to each election cycle. A voter must return the completed application to receive a ballot.

Military and/or Overseas Voters

Absentee voting procedures are available for members of the military service (including spouses and dependents) and voters residing outside the United States. Voters are advised to allow plenty of time for this process. Contact the Le Sueur County Elections Office at 507-357-2251 for further information on this process or see the Minnesota Secretary of State's Military/Overseas Voting information.
