There are no statewide races in Minnesota on next Tuesday’s elections but there are important city council races, school board elections and local issues that might affect you depending on where you live.
For those in Minnesota, visit the Secretary of State’s website to find your polling place and your sample ballot. Even though it is too late to pre-register, Minnesota law allows you to register at your polling place on election day.
Polling locations will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
