Getting ready to vote today?

Polls are open today until 8 p.m. for voting in the Primary election. If you're still heading out to cast your ballot, be sure you're ready with the help of the many tools available on

All voters are encouraged to double check their polling location. Minneapolis has added eight new polling places and changed the location of four others, so take two minutes and use the polling place finder to make sure you're off to the right place. While you're checking your polling place, you can also link directly to your sample ballot. Take a look at what will be on your ballot when you get to the polls so you can be prepared. You can even print off the sample ballot and bring it with you as a reference.

If you aren't already registered to vote, you can register at the polls. A current Minnesota driver's license or state ID - or receipt for either of these - with your current address serves to verify both your identify and address for registration. If you don't have a current driver's license or state ID, the list of documents you can use as proof of identity and address has been expanded, making it easier for more eligible voters to get registered at the polls.  Having another registered voter in your precinct vouch for you is another option for getting registered.

This election includes a partisan primary, found on the front sides of ballots in Minneapolis. In the partisan races, voters must select a single party and ONLY vote in races in that party's column. Special instructions for the primary including visual guides are available to help ensure voters know what to expect when they get their ballots.  These instructions have also been translated into Hmong, Somali, and Spanish, and these translations along with other election resources in multiple languages are available on theLanguage Support page of the Elections website.

If you have any questions, or run into any issues at your polling place, please call 311 or email us at Happy Primary Day!
