General voting information

In July, postcards were mailed to all registered voters in the city with polling place information. While polling place maps will be posted at every polling place location, it’s easy to save yourself the hassle of showing up at the wrong polling place by doing a little research ahead of time. Voters may only vote in person at their assigned polling place.

The simplest way to check your polling place location is to visit the state's polling place finder or call the St. Louis Park Elections Office at 952-924-2503. A map is published with this article.

Sample Ballots

The Secretary of State’s online Polling Place Finder includes a link to your precinct’s absentee ballot.

Register to Vote on Election Day

Minnesota allows voters to register to vote at the polls on Election Day. Registration is required if you have never registered to vote; if you have changed your name or address (including just moving to another apartment in the same building) since you last voted; or if you have not voted in four years.

Identification Needed to Register

Minnesota state law requires specific forms of identification to register at the polling place. Acceptable forms of identification are listed on St. Louis Park's Election Day Registration page. A valid Minnesota driver’s license, learner’s permit, Minnesota ID card or receipt for any of these containing a valid address in the precinct will work.

Absentee Voting

Absentee voting for the Nov. 6 general election began Friday, Sept. 21, and continues through 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5.

Unlike some other states, Minnesota does not offer early voting so that voters can avoid potential lines on Election Day by casting a ballot prior to Nov. 6. 

Absentee voting is available if you cannot get to the polling place on Election Day due to absence from the precinct, illness or disability, religious observance, or service as an election judge in another precinct.

Only one option is available now for absentee voting:

  • In person
    Visit St. Louis Park City Hall, 5005 Minnetonka Blvd., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 5.

MUST read: "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office" http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/ Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party Presidential candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
