Time To Vote!

Tomorrow is Voting Time!

The state general election will take place tomorrow Tuesday, November 6. The following is some general information to hopefully help you with any questions you may have.

When and where do I vote?

Polling places will open at 7 a.m. Tuesday, November 6, and remain open until 8 p.m. If you are in line at 8 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.

To find your specific polling place, visit the Minnesota Secretary of State website to find the the Polling Place Finder.

Voters may only vote in person at their assigned polling place. Be sure to know your correct polling place—due to redistricting, many voters will be voting at new locations.

Where can I view a sample ballot?

The Secretary of State’s online polling place finder includes a link to your precinct’s absentee ballot. Visit the Polling Place Finder.

Can I register to vote on Election Day?

Minnesota allows voters to register to vote at the polls on Election Day. Registration is required if you have never registered to vote; if you have changed your name or address (including just moving to another apartment in the same building) since you last voted; or if you have not voted in four years.

What identification is needed to register?

Minnesota state law requires specific forms of identification to register at the polling place. Acceptable forms of identification are listed on our Election Day Registration page.

Who can vote absentee?

Absentee voting is available if you cannot get to the polling place on Election Day due to absence from the precinct, illness or disability, religious observance, or service as an election judge in another precinct.

How do I vote absentee?

Two options are available for voting absentee:

  • In person
    Visit Minnetonka City Hall during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended voting hours are available Saturday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Monday, Nov. 5, until 5 p.m.
  • By mail
    Request an absentee ballot application by calling            952.939.8200      . Applications may also be downloaded from our Absentee Voting page. Upon receipt of your completed application, a ballot will be mailed. Remember, the voted ballot must be received at city hall by Election Day for the vote to count. Please allow sufficient time for postal delivery.

Where will election results be available?

Results will be available at the Hennepin County website atwww.hennepin.us and the Secretary of State website atwww.sos.state.mn.us.
