An Important Message Regarding Voting and COVID-19
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended social distancing practices to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. In accordance with the CDC’s recommendation, our election officials will take extra precautionary measures in facilitating in-person voting experience. However, we strongly encourage our residents to take advantage of the opportunity to vote from the safety of their homes through mail balloting. The Minnesota Secretary of State’s website provides all the necessary tools for checking voter registration status, registering to vote and voting by mail (absentee balloting)

We strongly encourage everyone to vote by mail (see useful link above); however City Hall will be open to vote in person starting June 26. This will be available during regular office hours M-TH 7:30am-5pm and Friday from 8am-noon. If residents feel the need to vote in person, we recommend voting during the direct balloting period of August 4- August 10th. Voting during direct balloting will allow residents to place their ballots directly into a ballot counter, saving time and minimizing exposure to others during the voting process.
If you are voting in person at City Hall, we will be practicing social distancing and can accommodate two voters at a time. If there are more than 2 people voting we will ask you to wait outside until the next available spot opens up. For voting at City Hall, the process will be set up to encourage foot traffic to flow in one direction, and we will have voters park in the far row of parking by the Fire station. Only park where “Vote Here” signs are located, and please do not park in the Fire Department spots. We will also have signage showing which door to enter, as we will not be using the main entrance for voters to enter – only to exit.
