Sample ballot

A sample ballot lists all the candidates running for office and ballot questions, just as the ballot for each precinct will appear on Election Day. A sample ballot is an excellent resource for preparing to vote. You can bring a sample ballot with you as a reference when you go to vote at the polling place on Election Day.

Download your sample ballot in the weeks leading up to each Election Day, based on your home address. The ballot at each of the 125 voting precincts in the City of Minneapolis is different, with races differing based on address, and with a different order for candidates appearing on the ballot in many offices.

It is important to use your home address, which is also the address at which you are registered or will register to vote at, in order to access a sample ballot that will be identical to the ballot you use to vote on Election Day or via absentee voting.
