Extended in-person absentee voting hours for the Special Election

The Special Election for the Hennepin County Board District 3 seat vacated by the resignation of Gail Dorfman is quickly approaching.  Election Day is Tuesday, May 13, 2014, and polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Residents of District 3 who live in Minneapolis and are unable to get to the polls on Election Day can vote by absentee ballot.

Monday, May 5, through Friday, May 9, voters may cast an absentee ballot in-person at the Elections Office in Minneapolis City Hall, located in room 201 during normal business hours, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The Elections office will be open extended hours on Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and Monday, May 12, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. to allow voters more time to cast an absentee ballot.

It is also possible to vote using an absentee ballot by mail, however, please be aware of the short period of time for absentee voting for the Special General Election. Absentee ballots which arrive after Election Day will not be counted. You may wish to consider casting your absentee ballot in person at City Hall if possible. You can print an absentee ballot request and bring it with you to City Hall to vote in-person, or request forms are available at the Elections office.
