Mail-in Ballot voters still have options ahead of Tuesday’s Dist. 11 Election

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

CARLTON, MN — A heads up for voters in Minnesota’s Senate District 11 special election.

Those who have concerns about their mail-in ballots arriving in time to be counted have a few options ahead of Tuesday night.

According to state elections officials, people who mailed in their ballots can still vote in person at their County Courthouse until 8 p.m. Tuesday. Officials stress this will not cancel their vote, but nullify the mail-in vote once it arrives.

Voters can also have their ballot sent via overnight mail, which elections officials say could be reimbursed according to campaign finance rules.

Last week, the Carlton County Auditor’s office invited people who live in mail-in-only precincts to drop off their ballots at the auditor’s office. They’ll be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.

The concerns over mail-in ballots arose in January after more than 400 ballots arrived late, and were not counted in the primary.

As for the race itself, Democrat Stu Lourey faces Republican Jason Rarick and Legal Marijuana Now party candidate John “Sparky” Birrenbach in Tuesday’s special election.

Senate District 11 features Carlton, Pine, Kanabec, and portions of St. Louis Counties.

The District 11 Senate seat was vacated when Democrat Tony Lourey was appointed to lead the state’s Department of Human Services by Governor Tim Walz.
