ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC/AP) -- Absentee voting started Friday for Minnesota voters.

In Olmsted County, absentee voting has moved to the east side of the fairgrounds at 1421 3rd Ave. SE.

Assistant Elections Administrator Mandy Ness said Olmsted County could have as many as 9,000 people voting absentee in the November election.

Absentee voting is available in person at county auditors' and some municipal clerks' offices, or by mail.

In-person absentee voting continues until 5 p.m. the day before the election. Those offices are also open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Saturday before the election.

To vote by mail, voters must submit an application and get the absentee ballot back to local election officials by Election Day. Voters can track their ballot online.
