Can I vote early in person?

Yes, Edina residents get an absentee ballot, fill it out and submit to Elections staff. Due to COVID-19, people are encouraged to vote by mail or use the drop-off in the parking lot to limit virus spread among voters and staff.

Due to expected record voter turnout and limited space inside the Elections area, voters should plan for extended wait times if voting in-person absentee or direct balloting. Please dress for the weather in case the line exceeds capacity; some transactions are being conducted in a tent in front of City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St.

COVID precautions: Voters must wear a mask that completely covers the mouth and nose and follow all COVID-19 guidelines.
