Early Voting for 2021 Local Elections begins September 17

The Minnesota Secretary of State website shows that voters may cast their ballots through the mail or in-person as early as Friday, September 17.  Technically, early voting begins 46 days ahead of Election Day, which would be September 18.  However, that is a Saturday, when city halls are generally closed.  So Secretary of State Simon has moved the first day of early voting up to Friday, September 17.

Several southwest Minneapolis metro cities are holding municipal and school board elections.  To see a listing of all of the candidates on the sample ballots, and also the dates/locations for League of Women Voters Candidate Forums,  click on the tab at the top of the page or from the list below for the specific city of interest.
