Early voting begins!
This is the first day mail-in absentee ballots will begin arriving at voters’ homes (if you don’t get yours on the 18th or in the subsequent few days, don’t worry – they typically arrive across a period of a few weeks, depending in part upon when you submitted your absentee ballot application relative to other Minnesota voters), as well as the first day you can vote early in-person.
If you’d like to vote by mail but haven’t submitted your absentee ballot application yet, you can do that on the MN Secretary of State’s website: https://mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/ABRegistration/ABRegistrationStep1.aspx. It’s recommended that you apply for a mail-in ballot at least 10 days before Election Day.
We’re very fortunate here in Senate District 44 – residents of Minnetonka, Plymouth, and Woodland can vote early in-person at their respective city halls!
- Minnetonka City Hall (14600 Minnetonka Blvd, Minnetonka) will be open for early voting in the Council Chambers Monday–Friday each week from 8 am to 4:30 pm, and they have extended hours right before Election Day: on Saturday, October 31 from 10 am to 3 pm, and on Monday, November 2 from 8 am to 5 pm.
- Plymouth City Hall (3400 Plymouth Blvd, Plymouth) will be open for early voting on September 18 from 8 am to 4:30 pm. After that, from September 21 to October 23, residents can vote right outside City Hall in the tent they’ll have set up, or curbside in their own vehicles, Monday–Friday each week from 8 am to 4:30 pm. Starting on October 26, voting will move back inside the City Hall building from 8 am to 4:30 pm, and they have extended hours right before Election Day: on Saturday, October 31 from 10 am to 3 pm, and on Monday, November 2 from 8 am to 5 pm.
- The City of Woodland has moved early in-person voting for its residents to a space in Deephaven Court (18279 Minnetonka Blvd Suite F, Deephaven) to enable safe social distancing. Visit their website for more information: https://woodlandmn.org/election-information/
- Every SD44 resident can also vote early in-person at our county election office, the Hennepin County Government Center (300 South 6th Street, Minneapolis), if that location happens to be more convenient.
If you’ll be voting in-person, please wear your mask and thank a poll worker!
