2024 Election Information


State Primary Election Tuesday March 5, 2024

Mail ballot packets for the March 5th Presidential Nomination Primary will be mailed to all mail ballot precincts beginning Tuesday, January 23, 2024. 


This election is a slightly different compared to other state primary elections. Instead of one ballot style, each major party (DFL, Legal Marijana Now, Republican) has their own ballot style.  Because of this, residents will receive three ballots with their mail ballot packet. You are allowed to only vote one ballot, the ballots you don’t vote can be destroyed.  As a reminder - on the signature envelope you must indicate their party preference, sign, and have your witness complete the witness section including witness name, address, and signature.    

Detailed instructions will be included in each packet.
