Early Vote Center opens
The new downtown space for early in-person voting is now open for the primary at 217 S. Third St. Standard hours throughout the absentee voting period are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. During the final two weeks before each election, these hours are extended and include weekend times. These hours will be posted on the website (vote.minneapolismn.gov) once they have been set.
People can vote early (by absentee ballot) by mail or in person.
What’s on the ballot?
- United States Representative (District 5).
- Minnesota State Senator (Districts 59 and 62).
- Minnesota State Representative (Districts 59A and 60B).
- Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice (Seat 6).
State law allows voters to bring materials into the polls to help complete their ballots — and the sample ballot is the single, best tool available for this purpose. By downloading and printing their sample ballots (which are customized to their specific ward and precinct), voters can practice marking their ballots. They can bring this marked-up sample ballot as a reference to the voting booth when completing their official ballots. This is the best way to reduce the time spent waiting in lines.
