Signs will be in place with specific guidelines for entering and exiting the in-person locations. Masks will be available to voters who would like one if they have not brought one with them; however, masks will not be required. All elections judges and personnel will be wearing masks and shields, as needed, per CDC guidelines.
Voters should return their mailed ballot in in-person before 5 p.m. on November 2 at one of the designated ballot return locations (Note: Arden Hills City Hall is not a designated ballot drop off location).
On Tuesday, November 3 ballots can be returned ONLY TO THE RAMSEY COUNTY ELECTIONS OFFICE IN ST. PAUL until 3:00 pm! If you bring your mailed ballot to a polling place on Tuesday, your ballot will be spoiled and you will be issued a new ballot and must vote at your precinct.
