VOTING 2020 - Friday, October 9, 2020

The Minnesota Secretary of State is encouraging all voters to vote from home to reduce the spread of disease and keep our communities healthy!

 

The City of Ellsworth is a city that is under the 400 registered voters & has chosen to hold this General Election on November 3rd, 2020 by mail ballot due to COVID-19. This decision by the Ellsworth City Council, was made back in May 2020.

 

The mail ballot voting procedure is a relatively simple one. If you are a registered voter in the City of Ellsworth, the Nobles County Auditor’s Office will mail a ballot directly to you to vote for the November 3rd, 2020 election. Your ballot will arrive by October 20th. You may have already received your ballot if you are a registered voter at your current address. If you have more than one registered voter in your household, each one will receive a separate ballot with their own return postage paid envelope. You may put your completed ballot back in the mail (no postage necessary) or drop it off @ the secure drop box in front of the Nobles County Government Center (315 10th Street, Worthington, MN  56187).  You may track the status of your ballot and confirm that it was received by the Nobles County Auditor-Treasurer and counted by contacting the Nobles County Government Center @ 507-295-5258.(even if you drop your ballot off at the secure drop box @ the Nobles County Government Center).

 

 

 

If you have moved or a name change, you will need to update, your voter registration to your new name or address at least 21 days before the election. Contact the Nobles County Auditor’s Treasurer’s Office @ 507-295-5258. The deadline to register online is 11:59PM, 21 days before Election Day.  “mnvotes.org”. The deadline to register on paper is 4:00PM, 21 days before Election Day.  Otherwise, you may register on Election Day (Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020), at the Nobles County Government Center.  

 

If you are NOT currently a registered voter you will still be able to vote, you just need to register by contacting the Nobles County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office @ 507-295-5258 to assist you in registering to vote 21 days before the election (prior to OCTOBER 13TH, 2020). Or, go online to “mnvotes.org” and fill out the application.

 

After the 14th of October, you will need to register and vote in person at the Nobles County Government Center (Nobles County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office @ 315 10th Street, Worthington, MN  56187). Make sure you bring along a proper ID.  Example:  Driver’s License and a current electric, water, gas bill with your name and date listed on the bill.

 

Ballots returned in person must be delivered by 3:00PM on Election Day, November 3rd, to the Nobles County Government Center 315 10th Street, Worthington, MN  56187. Ballots returned by mail, must be postmarked on or before the Election Day, November 3rd, 2020 AND received by Nobles County within the next seven calendar days (November 10th, 2020).  Your ballot will not count if it is received after the deadline. 

 

If someone is dropping off your ballot, the carrier may only have up to three other ballots. You will need to show ID with name and signature if dropping off someone else’s ballot.

 

Please keep in mind that the State Voter Registration System will automatically remove voters who do not vote at least once every four years, so you must vote on a regular basis to continue an updated registration.
