The polls show that the races for MN Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, and Auditor remain very close. The differences between the Republican and DFL candidates are often a couple of percentage points or less, essentially within the margin of error of the polls. The number of undecided voters is shrinking fast.
As of the end of last week, about 290,000 Minnesotans have already voted. This is roughly on track to the number that voted early in the last (2018) mid-term.
For the Republican candidates to win, we must get all Republican voters to the polls. Every vote is important.
If you haven’t voted yet, you can now vote early by “direct ballot”. During the final seven days before an Election Day, early voters who vote in person are allowed to place their ballots through a tabulator instead of sealing them into an envelope for later processing by the Hennepin County Ballot Board. You can watch as your ballot is tabulated and be aware of any errors the tabulator may detect as the ballot is processed.
Between now and Monday, November 7, direct balloting can be done by voters in Bloomington and Edina at their respective City Halls:
- November 1-4, 8 am to 4:30 pm.
- Saturday, November 5, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m
- Monday, November 7, 8 am to 5 p.m.
On Election Day, Tuesday November 8, voting is done at your precinct polling place. Find your polling location at mnvotes.org. Polling sites are open for voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
