Early Voting

If you are unable to vote on Election Day or prefer to not go to the polling place, it is possible to vote early using an absentee ballot. Note that you will need another registered Minnesota voter to witness your absentee ballot.

The easiest way to vote early is to go to MNVotes.org, click on OTHER WAYS TO VOTE, and follow the instructions there.

It is also possible to vote early by coming to City Hall during the dates listed above. Allow up to 20 minutes for this process. A City team member will be a witness for your ballot.

When you vote early, you can track your ballot and verify that it has been counted.

Voting on Election Day

To vote on election day, simply come to the polling place during open hours. If your address has changed or you need to register, please bring a current MN Drivers license or other photo ID and proof of residence (utility, cable, or other bill).

Registering to Vote

The easiest way to register is to go to MNVotes.org, click on REGISTER TO VOTE, and follow the instructions there.

Registration can be done at City Hall up to 20 days before the election, at which point it temporarily closes until Election Day. You can register at the polling place on Election Day. Bring a current MN Drivers license and if the address differs from your current address, also bring additional proof of residence (utility, cable, or other bill).

Change of Name or Address

If your name or address has changed since the prior election, you must re-register.

Identification and Proof of Residence

Minnesota Statutes (M.S. 201.061; M.R. 820.5100) require authorized forms of identification when registering to vote. It can be any one of these:

  • Valid Minnesota driver’s license, Minnesota learner’s permit or Minnesota ID card with the current residence listed.
  • The yellow receipt for a Minnesota driver’s license, learner’s permit or ID card.
  • Tribal ID card with name, current address, signature, and picture issued by the tribal government of a tribe recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Tribal band members are not required to live on an Indian reservation in order to use a tribal identification card to prove residence.

If your identification does not feature your current address, you will also need proof of residence which can be one of the following if it has the current address printed on it:

  • Residential lease or rental agreement (must be valid through Election Day)
  • Current student fee statement
  • An invoice or account statement, due or dated within 30 days of election, listing the current residence (phone, cable, internet, garbage, utilities, credit card or rent/mortgage)
