The City of Minneapolis will open two new in-person voting centers on Tuesday.
With a week to go before Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 3, the city says these early vote centers make in-person voting more convenient, especially for those who need language support or other special accommodations, including curbside voting.
In addition to the early in-person voting locations at 980 E. Hennepin Ave. and at the Hennepin County Government Center, 300 6th St. S., there will be two additional locations at:
- The Urban League Twin Cities, 2100 Plymouth Ave. N.
- Longfellow Park Recreation Center, 3435 36th Ave. S.
Minneapolis has also opened more than a dozen locations where people can drop off their completed mail-in ballot. More details on that here.

Absentee voting and early in-person voting are popular options among Minnesotans this year due to the pandemic.
