Voting procedures for some people in Greater Minnesota may have changed since 2018. Kim Crockett with the Minnesota Voters Alliance says voters should confirm if their precinct has shifted to mail-in only so they aren’t surprised on election day.

“Just since 2018 we’ve gone up 42 percent in mail-in precincts. In some cases, people will need to drive an hour to get to their so-called central polling location. They really need to plan ahead.”

Crockett says it is crucial for all voters to check the statewide poll finder on the secretary of state’s website to be sure you know exactly where you need to be to make sure your vote is counted.
