Voting Information

How Safe at Home participants vote

Safe at Home participants can register as absentee voters through Safe at Home. This is a special process developed for Safe at Home. This process is the only way for participants to vote in an election and keep their address confidential. There is no way for a participant to vote at a polling place without disclosing their true address. 


Finding a ballot online

The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State offers a tool for a voter to check the status of their absentee ballot online. However, Safe at Home participants vote in a way that does not make their personal information known to anyone outside of the Safe at Home office. Therefore, online tools to find out the status of their ballot will not work for Safe at Home participants. 


16 and 17-year-old voter pre-registration

If you are a 16 or 17-year-old Safe at Home participant who would like to pre-register to vote, please submit your request using the 16 and 17-year-old voter pre-registration request form, and Safe at Home will send you a Voter Pre-Registration Form to complete and send back via your regular Safe at Home mail.

If you are NOT an active Safe at Home participant, your request will be disregarded.
If you have questions about voting or voter pre-registration, please call Safe at Home at
