Getting results

  • Since 2010, all absentee ballots are processed and counted centrally at the Olmsted County Elections Office. Election results at the polling place will be the vote totals for in-person voters who went to the polls on Election Day. The vote totals of the in-person polling place voters and the vote totals of the absentee voters will be merged into one unofficial vote total for the precinct before being posted to election websites.
  • To access results, visit the Secretary of State’s website: www.mnvotes.org. As a reminder, election results are never final until canvassing is completed.
