Voter guides in the mail

Watch for yours, use sample ballot

Minneapolis voters should watch their mail over the next few days for a voter guide. Minneapolis Elections & Voter Services sent a voter guide to every household in Minneapolis – customized by voting precinct – to help voters understand their rights, how they can register and vote, and what’s on the ballot.

Voters are advised to use the sample ballot included in the guide to consider their choices in advance before heading to the polls. They can review all the races, candidates and questions on the ballot. They can mark their choices on the sample ballot and bring it to the polls to speed up the process of completing their official ballot (which will look identical). This can help everyone spend less time waiting in line and in the voting booth on Election Day.

The guide also gives instructions on voting early. Any Minneapolis voter can choose to vote early by mail or in person instead of waiting for Election Day.

The Minneapolis Elections & Voter Services Division is responsible for administering elections in the City of Minneapolis. For information about registering and voting in Minneapolis, residents can visit http://vote.minneapolismn.gov  or call 311 or 612-673-3000.
