Voting and COVID-19
The City of Hopkins is working closely with Hennepin County to stay prepared and respond to COVID-19, and is relying heavily on the CDC Recommendations for Election Polling Locations as well as those from the Minnesota Department of Health.
To minimize direct contact with others, the CDC encourages you to vote by mail. All Minnesota voters are eligible to vote by mail. It is easy to vote by mail, just as long as you plan ahead.
Beginning May 13, you may apply online for your ballot. Your ballot will be mailed to you about six weeks before Election Day, beginning on June 26 for the August Primary and on September 18 for the November General Election.
The City is doing everything possible to ensure a safe election season for our residents. We will update our website as conditions change.
You can vote early by using an absentee ballot, instead of voting in person at the polling place on Election Day.
Candidate filing for the November 5, 2019 election is July 30 to August 13.
Candidates must file financial reports when they have collected more than $750 in contributions or expended more than $250.
Judges ensure that the voting process goes smoothly and honestly. Serving as an election judge is a great way to meet your neighbors and protect one of our most cherished freedoms - the right to vote.
Results from the last four City elections (odd years) are listed here.
