New for 2020 State General

Absentee ballots must be received by election day Nov. 3 to be counted. If you still need to return your ballot, drop it off as soon as possible. See the ballot drop-off section below for more details.

Next Steps for Voters

All eligible voters in Edina can vote early by absentee either in person or a ballot-drop off location. Voters should no longer place their absentee ballot in the mail. Instead, voters have several options to ensure their vote is counted in the November general election:

  • Voters who have already put their ballot in the mail can track their ballot. If their ballot has not yet been received the voter can vote in-person in either by absentee, or at their polling place on Election Day.
  • Voters can deliver their ballots to Edina City Hall by hand (or have someone they trust hand-deliver it for them).
  • Voters can cast their vote in person with an absentee ballot at Edina City Hall up until Nov. 2.
  • Voters can cast their votes in person on Election Day. Use Pollfinder Tool to find out where to vote.

For the 2020 General Election, which is Nov. 3, previously registered voters do not need a witness for their absentee ballot. Make sure your voter information (name, address, ID number and signature) is complete on the signature envelope. If you have not registered before, you will still need a witness.
