Minnesota passes law allowing all voters to join permanent ABSENTEE VOTING list
06/18/2024 // Kevin Hughes // Views

Minnesota has passed a law allowing all of the state's voters to permanently vote through absentee ballots.

"Starting June 1, 2024, voters can sign up once to be mailed an absentee ballot for every election," Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon's office declared. "On June 1, 2024, new election laws will take effect in Minnesota that make it easier to vote from home with a no-excuse absentee ballot and improve election integrity."

The announcement from Simon's office added that "all eligible voters can choose to join the permanent absentee voter list by checking the box on the interactive voter registration application" and the online and paper applications can be found at government websites.

An absentee ballot permits a voter to vote by mail within 46 days before an election. "No excuse" absentee voting has been available to all Minnesota voters since 2014, and this category of absentee voting extends to the permanent absentee list.

Voters can choose to leave the permanent absentee voter list by submitting a written request to their county elections office. Voters will be taken off the list if an absentee ballot is returned as undeliverable, if the county receives notice of their death, or if their voter status changes to "challenged" or "inactive."

The ballots received after election day will still not count. (Related: Big win for election integrity in PA as court confirms improper absentee ballots won’t be counted.)

In addition to the new absentee rules, Minnesota residents can also now provide a description of their residence if they don't have a specific address. This can include cardinal directions or distance from the closest crossroads. Twenty other states feature this on their voter registration forms, as does the National Mail Voter Registration Form.

Meanwhile, Delaware's highest court could soon decide whether Delawareans will be able to cast early ballots or request permanent absentee status in elections later this year. The state's Supreme Court recently heard arguments on whether early voting and permanent absentee voting violates the state's constitution. Legislators passed a law in 2019 that permitted 10 days of early voting starting in 2022. The permanent absentee law was accepted in 2010.

More states allow all voters to vote by absentee ballot

Minnesota has joined eight other states and Washington, D.C. that allow all voters, irrespective of disability status or age, to register to permanently vote absentee.

Along with Minnesota and the District of Columbia, the other states are Arizona, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and Virginia.

Three other states allow eligible voters to sign up for an absentee ballot list for one year: Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas.

Furthermore, 11 other states permit voters with permanent disabilities to join permanent absentee and mail-in voting lists. These are Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

In addition, Louisiana, Maine and Wisconsin also allow senior voters to sign up for permanent absentee voter lists.

In Pennsylvania, voters receive applications at the beginning of the year and, upon submittal, the voter will receive mail-in ballots for all elections that year. In Alaska, election supervisors can designate persons as permanent absentee voters and mail those voters absentee ballot applications if they live in a remote area, are residents of long-term care facilities or are disabled.

In Massachusetts, Missouri and Rhode Island, absentee or mail-in ballot applications are sent out to permanently disabled voters.
