Did you know we have a primary election this year? So far, the City's Early Vote Center has received more than 7,000 ballots - this is thousands more votes than the primary election in 2016 and 2014.
So come out and vote!
The Saturday hours for the Early Vote Center have begun for the August 14 primary election. For the next two weekends, the center will be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Early Vote Center hours can be found at vote.minneapolismn.gov.
The good thing is that early voting is easy.
Any voter can vote early - no special reason is needed. If you vote early you can get more time and attention as well as language access support.
You can also save time by taking these three steps:
1) Make sure you’re registered to vote. Voters can register or check the status of their registrations at vote.minneapolismn.gov/voters/register.
2) Download and complete the absentee ballot application form in advance, and bring it when you go to vote. Find the request form at vote.minneapolismn.gov/voters/absentee.
3) Look at a sample ballot ahead of time; even bring it to refer to when you go to vote. You can find sample ballots for all 132 Minneapolis precincts at vote.minneapolismn.gov/voters/ballot.
So what’s on the ballot for the August 14th primary? The following primary races:
U.S. Senator, special election.
United States Representative for District 5.
Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
Minnesota State Representative (Districts 59A, 59B, 60B, 62A and 62B).
County Commissioner (Districts 2 and 4).
