Elections and Voting


Fairview Township will be operating a polling place for all Fairview Township voters in the Pillager Fire Dept. Substation #2, directly adjacent to the Fairview Town Hall.

The Board of Supervisors is committed to ensuring that citizens have an opportunity to vote in person if they so choose during this important election year while at the same time keeping the public safe during the pandemic.

Citizens are encouraged to vote ahead for both the primary and general elections via absentee ballot if they so choose. Absentee voting will reduce the number of voters at the polling place and limit health risks during the pandemic.

Ballots are available now for the November 3rd General election. Contact the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office to request an absentee ballot at (218) 547-7260 or or

If you have not already registered to vote, you may do so ahead of election day by contacting the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office for instructions.  

Fairview Township’s polling place will be set up to comply with COVID-19 safety measures. Social distancing will be in force which may limit the number of voters indoors at a given time. Election judges will wear masks. All voters are required to wear a mask, and a supply will be available at the door, as well as hand sanitizer. Each voter will be provided a pen that they will use for marking their ballot and to then take with them. Polling pads, which expedite the registration and sign-in process, and all voting booths will be sanitized between voters.

On election day, we will facilitate Curbside Voting. When you arrive at the fire hall, please call (218) 825-9322 and two election judges will be available to assist you. If you are unwilling or unable to wear a mask you WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE, but we will require you to take advantage of our Curbside Voting service.

How to vote early by absentee ballot

Voters may apply to vote by absentee ballot for any election held in Minnesota conducted under state law. For state elections, voters may apply online through the Minnesota state voter portal,    or print and complete a paper form. 

In-person absentee voting for Fairview Township residents is available at the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer's office in Walker, and more conveniently at the LakeShore City Hall (address listed above). For statewide elections, extended hours for in-person absentee voting are observed at all locations on the Saturday prior to election day from 10 am to 3 pm, and until 5 pm on the Monday prior to election day.

Voters making application through the mail are encouraged to allow ample mailing time to receive the ballot and mail it back so that it is received on or before election day. Completed absentee ballots can be returned to the Auditor-Treasurer's Office by the voter or by a designated agent of the voter no later than 3 p.m. on election day. An agent must be at least 18 years old and may only return ballots for up to three voters per election. The agent must show identification and sign a record of ballots delivered.

Absentee ballots (and mail ballots) cast for statewide elections may be tracked on-line by the voter to verify the status of their ballot. Mail ballot voters that need their ballot sent elsewhere may also apply for an absentee ballot (mail ballots are non-forwardable).

For all election related applications and information, voters may contact the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office, 303 Minnesota Avenue West, PO Box 3000, Walker MN  56484, by calling 218-547-7260, email to, or stop in.
