The ballot at each of the 132 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.

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

You can view and print a sample ballot on the Minnesota Secretary of State's website roughly 45 days before Election Day.
