More than 1.7 million absentee ballots have been accepted as of Monday morning, however hundreds of thousands of ballots are still outstanding.
According to the Minnesota Secretary of State's website, 1,716,575 absentee ballots have been accepted as of Nov. 2, a day before Election Day.
This is about 58% of Minnesota's total turnout in the 2016 general election, FOX 9's Theo Keith tweeted.
Meanwhile, a total of 2,055,519 absentee ballots have been requested, which means 338,944 absentee ballots are outstanding. However, some of those outstanding ballots could be from people who chose to vote in-person early instead of mailing in a ballot.
If you still have an absentee ballot at home, don't mail it, Secretary of State Steve Simon continues to remind people. Instead, you should drop it off at your local election office by 3 p.m. Tuesday or vote in-person early, or on Election Day to make sure it gets counted.
If you've already mailed your ballot, but it hasn't been received yet (you can check the status of your ballot here), you can still vote early in-person or on Election Day, thus overriding your ballot that's in the mail.
A court ruling last week means any absentee ballot that arrives after the Election Day deadline will have to be segregated from the other ballots and may not be counted if the ballots are challenged in court.
That's why election officials are urging people not to mail their ballots.
