Changes to Filing Process

Candidate Filing May 19 - June 2

Candidate filings begin Tuesday, May 19 at 8 a.m. and will run through Tuesday, June 2 at 5 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blue Earth County is providing flexibility for candidates to file.

Candidates wishing to file for seats in Blue Earth County, and for seats in the City of Mankato as the county is the filing officer for Mankato, can:

  1. Mail candidate filings or utilize the drop box at the Blue Earth County Historic Courthouse;
  2. Email candidate filings to the elections office; or
  3. Schedule an in-person appointment to complete the filing process.

All candidates should visit or call the Blue Earth County Elections Office at (507) 304-4341 to learn more about becoming a candidate and beginning the filing process.

Blue Earth County will be entering filing information into the Secretary of State’s candidate filing website as soon as in-person filings take place by candidates. Media and members of the public can retrieve information from the site by visiting at their convenience throughout the filing period. Additionally, links to the Secretary of State site will be provided from the Blue Earth County website. This will help offer media the flexibility to obtain information quickly and consistently throughout the filing period.
