Voting Quick Links

Who’s eligible to vote?

Generally speaking, anyone who is 18 years old by Election Day, is a U.S. citizen and has been a resident of Minnesota for at least 20 days may vote. Details here.

Voter registration
Registered voters who reside within the Red Rock Central School District #2884 attendance area are eligible to vote on the November 3 Election Day referendum.
While voters may register at the polls on Election Day, registering in advance will save voters time on Election Day and give them the option of voting by mail. Voters have until October 13 to register to vote in advance. Not sure whether you’re registered? Find out by checking here.

Residents may register to vote online through the Minnesota Secretary of State website.
Voters registering on Election Day will need proof of identity and residence, which may include:
  • Minnesota Driver’s License, Learner’s Permit, or Identification card showing a current address (or yellow receipt for any of these).
  • Valid, previous registration from the same precinct.
  • “Notice of Ineffective or Late Registration” from the Public Service office.
  • A registered voter from your precinct who personally knows you reside in the precinct and will vouch for your identity.
  • A photo ID and a current utility bill showing your name and address in the precinct.

Absentee Voting / Early Voting (September 18 through November 2)

Residents may cast absentee ballots during a 46-day period leading up to the Election Day, from September 18 through November 2.

Absentee voting by mail
  • Any registered voter may cast a ballot by mail and may request an absentee ballot online. Anyone voting by mail may fill out and mail their ballots to the county election office anytime during the 46-day Absentee Voting period. Ballots must be postmarked by November 3 and arrive in the county election office by November 10 in order to be counted.
  • Residents who have not yet registered may do so online, but must allow enough time for county election officials to mail a ballot to the voter before the election. 

Absentee voting in person

  • Voters who prefer to drop off their ballots or vote early in person may do so at their county election office from September 18 through November 2. 
  • Hours for in-person absentee voting during this 46-day period are:
    • 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
    • 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 31
    • 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, November 2.

Election Day Voting (November 3)
