If you live in Senate District 51, you will have an election on November 2nd, 2021. What is on your ballot will depend on which school district you live in. You can use the Minnesota polling place finder to see where your polling place is, check which school district you live in, and view a sample ballot. Scroll down for information on what is on the ballot in each school district.
There are three ways to vote:
- In Person on Election Day: Vote in-person on Tuesday, November 2nd at your polling place. Please use the polling place finder to double check your polling place, as it is frequently different for school district elections. Polls will be open from 7am to 8pm.
- Vote By Mail: If you prefer, you can cast your ballot by mail from your own home. You must download this application and then return it to your county election office (by mail, fax, or e-mail). Once you get your ballot, follow the instructions carefully to ensure that your ballot is counted. To count, it must be received (NOT postmarked) by Election Day. If you choose to vote using this method, we recommend you leave plenty of time so your ballot isn’t tossed for arriving late.
- Vote Early In-Person: You can also vote early, in-person, starting Friday, September 17th. The locations for this are also different from an even numbered election year. Information on early voting appears below under each district.
