Voting is very easy. Minnesota allows anyone to vote by absentee or early voting, which begins Sept. 22. Absentee voting may be done in person or by mail. Only the voter (not a friend or parent) can pick up or complete an absentee ballot.
Are you registered? To vote, you must be:
at least 18 years old; and
Minnesota resident for at least 20 days on Election Day.
Vote in person: Bloomington City Hall - City Clerk’s Office 1800 W Old Shakopee Rd.
Regular hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Extended hours before Election Day: Saturday, Nov. 4, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Monday, Nov. 6, until 5 p.m.
College Students Wishing to Vote
Students attending college who wish to vote should complete an absentee ballot application. An absentee ballot with a postage-paid envelope will then be mailed to the student’s college residence address.
Absentee ballots must be received on or before Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Applications may be returned by mail (City Clerk’s Office, 1800 W. Old Shakopee Rd., Bloomington, MN, 55431), or in person. Students who have a fall break or are home for a visit may also vote in person at the City Clerk’s Office during normal business hours.
