Today is Primary Day
On August 9, there will be two elections in Minnesota – the Statewide Primary Election and the Congressional District 1 Special Election.
On the Statewide Primary ballot, voters can expect to see state and local partisan and non-partisan races. In partisan races, voters can only vote for candidates of one party. The winners of the partisan races will appear on the November 8 General Election ballot.
Voters in the current Congressional District 1 boundaries will also see a special election on their ballot. The winner will serve in the U.S. House of Representatives starting this fall and ending in January 2023.
Most polling places will be open on August 9 between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., with a small number of rural polling locations opening at 10 a.m. Find your polling location and view voting hours at mnvotes.gov/pollfinder.
