Voting Options

In-Person Voting on Election Day

If you wish to vote in person on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 there are only a few things you need to know:

Vote In-Person Before Election Day

Any Minnesota voter can apply to vote early in-person.

  • Burnsville residents can apply and vote in-person at Burnsville City Hall during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and Saturday, Oct 31 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Applications are available at City Hall.
  • You will receive a ballot on-site to vote
  • Direct balloting starts one week before election day where voters can place their ballot directly into the ballot counter to be counted immediately

Absentee/Mail-In Voting

Any Minnesota voter may apply to have an absentee ballot sent to them – no reason needs to be given and the voter is not required to be out of their precinct on Election Day. Absentee ballots can be returned by mail or dropped off at Burnsville City Hall. There are only a few steps to take when voting absentee:

  • Request an absentee ballot at www.mnvotes.org
  • Once you have your ballot, carefully read the included instructions on how to complete the ballot
  • Due to COVID-19, registered voters are not required to have a witness sign their ballot. Non-registered voters will still need a witness to indicate their proof of residence  
  • Return the ballot to the Ballot Dropbox or mail the ballot back as soon as possible. It will be opened and counted within a week prior to Election Day

Ballots must be received by Election Day, Nov. 3, in order to be counted. This change is due to a decision made by the 8th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals on Oct. 29. Hand delivered or Ballot Dropbox ballots will be received at Burnsville City Hall until 3 p.m. on Election Day.
