Did you apply for a general election ballot to be sent to you by mail? Please be patient, it will arrive soon! The first day by law that ballots could be mailed was September 18, which was the start of the early voting period. Allow time for your ballot to arrive in the mail before you decide to vote in-person.
While you can vote in-person after requesting a ballot by mail, it takes extra time for election officials to spoil your ballot then reissue a new one. This holds up the line for everyone.
If you can’t remember if you applied for a ballot to be mailed to you, visit the Secretary of State website to check the status of your ballot. Once you receive your mailed ballot, be sure to follow the instructions carefully and mail it back as soon as possible to ensure it arrives by Election Day.
You may also drop off your completed ballot at City Hall during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Contact a City of Hopkins election official at 952-548-6300 with questions. Find more information about voting and elections on the Secretary of State website here.
