Elections & Voter Services New Facility
Elections & Voter Services has moved from City Hall to 980 E Hennepin Ave.
Why did you move?
The move brings all elections operations together under one roof for the first time.
Early voting, warehouse, mail ballot processing, candidate filing, election judge training, and administration are all in the new building.
We’re thrilled to have all staff located together to better coordinate our services.
What are the parking and transit options?
The building is located just off I-35W on East Hennepin Ave. Nearby bus routes include the 61, 25, and 4. The building has free public parking, and bike racks will be installed in the coming weeks. A Nice Ride hub is located nearby as well.
Can I still vote early downtown?
Yes. In addition to the new site (roughly 2 miles from City Hall), you can vote early at the downtown Hennepin County Government Center. There are plans to open additional early voting sites around the city for general elections.
