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.

In Hennepin County, as of Oct. 25, 524,985 absentee ballots have been issued and 370,109 ballots have been accepted.

Statewide, as of Oct. 23, 1,542,086 people applied to vote from home, and 1,077,834 ballots have already been accepted, Secretary of State Steve Simon says. At this point in 2016, 480,661 people had chosen to vote from home.
