What to expect

COVID-19 safety protocols

The entrance to the early vote center, showing COVID-19 safety precautions

Due to COVID-19, we recommend voting early by mail this year. If you prefer to vote early in person, we are here to serve you. 

Here are our safety precautions for people who vote early:

PrecautionsDetails
Face coverings

You must wear a face covering unless you are exempt due to health reasons. 

Hand sanitizer at entrances and exits We will have sanitizing stations at the entrance and exit, with signs.
Social distancing Keep a six-foot distance between yourself and others as much as possible inside the polling place.
Sanitized pens We will offer you a sanitized pen at the polling place entrance. You may bring your own pen, if you prefer.
Curbside vote

You can ask to have a ballot brought out to your car if:

  • You cannot easily leave your vehicle for mobility reasons.
  • You need to avoid contact with others as a health precaution.
Individual "I Voted Early" stickers

To avoid unnecessary hand-to-hand contact, our staff will:

  • Pre-cut 'I Voted Early' stickers
  • Place stickers on a table for voters to pick up

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

See valid options for proof of residence

How we count ballots

Early voting prior to Oct. 27

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 from Oct. 27 - Nov. 2

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 Nov. 3, you must vote at your assigned polling place.
