Several Chippewa County townships have moved to mail balloting for all state and federal elections. Voters in the townships of Big Bend, Crate, Grace, Havelock, Kragero, Leenthrop, Louriston, Mandt, Rheiderland, Tunsberg and Woods officially moved to the mail ballot system beginning with the 2018 Primary Election that was held in August.

Residents in those townships need to be registered voters to receive a ballot for the upcoming General Election in November. According to Michelle May, Chippewa County Auditor/Treasurer, there are three easy steps to register for the mail ballot process:

“First, residents should check or update their voter registration at www.mnvotes.org or by contacting the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office before the pre-registration deadline of Oct. 16, 2018.”

“Next, the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office will mail all ballots to registered voters around Oct. 17, along with pre-stamped return envelopes.

“Finally, voters must return their ballots to the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office by mail in the pre-stamped envelopes or by hand delivery by 8 p.m. on election night on Nov. 6. That’s all there is to it!” said May.
