National election is one year away

There are three times to vote in 2020


This Sunday will be exactly one year from the Nov. 3, 2020 election, where voters will be casting ballots for the Minnesota Legislature, U.S. Congress and U.S. president.  In addition to the general election, Minnesota will have two primaries: the presidential primary March 3 and the state primary Aug. 11.

Key 2020 election dates

Early voting in the presidential primary

Minnesota will hold its presidential primary on Super Tuesday and because of early voting, we will be among the first voters in the nation to cast ballots. The Early Vote Center opens Jan. 17 for the presidential primary, and it will be at a new location: 980 E. Hennepin Ave. In downtown Minneapolis, Hennepin County will also have early voting at the Government Center, 300 S. Sixth St.

This will be Minnesota’s first presidential primary election since 1992. People who vote will need to choose which major party’s ballot they want. The parties people choose will not be public information, though it will be available to each major party.
