Ramsey County voters can drop their ballots off at Allianz Field

The Minnesota United is opening up Allianz Field next week for voters to return their absentee ballots.

Voters in Ramsey County will be able to drop off their absentee ballots at Allianz Field in St. Paul. 

Minnesota United said Thursday that it has partnered with Ramsey County on a ballot return location starting Thursday, Oct. 29.

“We’re honored to have Allianz Field be a ballot drop-off location for Ramsey County, and to serve the second-largest county in the state,” Minnesota United CEO Chris Wright said. “It is so important to provide accessible voting options to registered voters, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and we believe Allianz Field is easily accessible to our community, whether via car, light rail, bus or on foot.”

Voters will be able to drop off their completed ballots at the Brew Hall at Allianz Field or at a curbside location on Shields Avenue. The ballot returns will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Oct. 29-30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 31 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 2.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Those who go to Allianz Field to return their ballot will be required to wear a mask indoors (free masks will be available, and if someone refuses they'll be directed to Lot C to return their ballot) and there will be social distance queues with hand sanitizer. 

“We’re grateful for this partnership with Minnesota United to offer Allianz Field as a safe and easily accessible location for Ramsey County voters to return their absentee ballots in person,” said Ramsey County Board Chair Toni Carter. 

This effort aligns with Ramsey County’s ongoing commitment to increasing access to voting and ensuring that everyone has a voice in deciding the direction of their community and country, which has become even more critical during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
