Precinct 1 polling location change
Due to COVID-19 changes, the polling location for Enchanted and Shady islands will be at Shorewood Community and Event Center, 5735 Country Club Road, rather than at the residence it has been located at in the past. This affects the primary and general election and is the new polling place indefinitely.
During the 2020 election there are two council member and one mayor position on the ballot. All positions are four-year terms. A packet of information will be available no later than July 1, 2020, for any resident interested in running for city office. If you have questions, please contact the city clerk, 952.960.7900.
Absentee voting for primary election
A witness is not needed for the primary due to COVID-19 guidelines. Our newsletter was published prior to the change in rules.
Absentee voting begins June 26 for the August 11 primary. No in-person absentee voting will be at city hall during the 2020 primary election due to COVID-19 guidelines. Early voting can take place by mail, or in-person at Hennepin County Government Center. If you have questions or concerns about absentee voting, please contact the city clerk, 952.960.7900.
