Voter Information

Your right to vote is a precious freedom. Exercising your right to vote is a fundamental privilege of a democratic society. Democracy and the freedom that comes with it can only be preserved through your participation. Stand up and be counted!

Who Can Vote?

You can vote if you are ALL of the following:

  • 18 years of age or older on Election Day; a US citizen;
  • a Minnesota resident for at least 20 days before the election;
  • a resident of your precinct on Election Day;
  • not under court-ordered guardianship in which the court order revokes my right to vote;
  • have not been found by a court to be legally incompetent to vote;
  • have the right to vote because, if I have been convicted of a felony, my felony status has expired (been completed) or I have been discharged from my sentence;

A disability - accessible voting machine will be available at each precinct on Election Day and also for absentee voters. This machine ensures compliance with the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA). HAVA requires that all polling locations be equipped with at least one disability-accessible voting machine.

Where Do I Vote?

Your polling location is dependent on the address where your house is physically located.  If you have a Farmington mailing address, but your house is physically located in Lakeville, you vote in Lakeville.  Polling locations are open for voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
