Election Day is fast approaching and the City of Duluth is providing an update on early voting as well as what to expect on election day to ensure everyone has their vote counted.

First and foremost, if you still have an absentee ballot at home, YOU MUST drop it off by hand to an election office or official drop box. DO NOT use the mail to return your absentee ballot as it will likely not arrive in time to be counted.

Dropping it off by hand can be done safely during the pandemic as there is a drive-up option and if you utilize the in-person option, there will be less people than on Election Day and both you and city officials will be wearing masks.
