Hennepin, Ramsey election offices open Saturday and Monday for last-minute absentee voting

Hennepin and Ramsey County election offices will be open Saturday and will stay open until 5 p.m. Monday to provide absentee ballots for voters who can’t get to the polls on Tuesday for the state-wide primary election.

The Hennepin County office is on the public service level — the skyway level — of the county Government Center at 300 S. Sixth St. in downtown Minneapolis. “Absentee Voting” signs will help direct voters.

It’s open especially for absentee voting on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will stay until 5 p.m. Monday.

Ramsey County, too, has extended hours for in-person absentee voting at its elections office, 90 W. Plato Blvd., St. Paul, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday.

Absentee ballots can be used to vote early if:

  • You’re going to be absent from the precinct on the day of the state primary.
  • Illness or disability prevents you from going to a polling place.
  • Religious discipline or observance prohibits you from going to a polling place.
  • You are an election judge in another precinct.

Voters in other counties can check with their county’s election office for procedures there.
