Welcome to the City of Truman, Minnesota. Truman is a community of 1,100 that lies twenty miles to the north of the Iowa border in south central Minnesota. Founded when the railroad came through the area in 1899, our city features an independent school district, exceptional quality of life, and a safe atmosphere to raise a family. We think you’ll agree that Truman is truly a great place to call home!

MN ABSENTEE & EARLY VOTING AVAILABLE

 

The state of Minnesota now offers Early Voting and No-Excuse Absentee Voting.  You can vote early by using the absentee ballot, instead of voting in person at the polling place on Election Day.  You can vote absentee by mail, in person, or by having a person you know pick up and deliver your ballot to you.  Beginning with the August 12, 2014 Primary Election, any voter may vote absentee.

 

Absentee ballots are available 46 days before the election.  In 2014, ballots will be ready starting June 27 for the Primary Election (August 12); and September 19 for the General Election (November 4).

 

Absentee ballot applications are available online at www.sos.state.mn.us, at city hall in Truman, or at the Martin County Auditor’s office at the courthouse in Fairmont, MN.

 

Voters in the military and citizens living outside the United States use a different process to vote absentee.
