What to expect

What you need to bring

If you are registered to vote at your current address, you do not need to bring anything to vote in person.

You can register to vote at an early voting location.

You must show proof of residence before voting if:

  • You need to register or update your registration
  • You have not voted in the last four years

How we count ballots

Early voting prior to one-week before Election Day

Up until seven days before Election Day, Minnesota election law requires that you put your completed ballot into several envelopes. Your ballot must stay in the envelopes until closer to Election Day, when we will open and process it. This is the same process had you voted by mail.

Early voting during the week before Election Day

During the last seven days before Election Day, Minnesota election law lets you put your ballot directly into the ballot counter. This is the same as you would vote on Election Day.

Either way, you will leave with an ‘I Voted Early’ sticker.

Early voting locations closed on Election Day

Early voting locations are closed on Election Day. On Election Day, you must vote at your assigned polling place.
