Absentee voting is easy, any voter may vote early
Early voting (absentee voting) begins Sept. 22. Any voter may vote early. Standard hours throughout the absentee voting period are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. During the final two weeks before the election, these hours will be extended and include weekend times. All early voting hours are posted on the website (vote.minneapolismn.gov).
Early in-person voting is convenient. It especially helps voters who need language support or other special accommodations. The Early Vote Center helps voters get extra time, attention and resources more readily than the polls might on Election Day.
