The 2016 Election Day is finally upon us. Besides the presidential contest, local residents will be voting for several other elected officials, including a U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 6th congressional district, a State Senator for District 30, a State Representative for District 30B and a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice, in addition to local races such as mayor, city council and school board. There are also two Wright County Commissioner races impacting our area, as well as Elk River (ISD 728) School Board.
Here’s where you need to go to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8:
Albertville residents will be voting at St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West, located at 11343 50th St. NE in Albertville. Enter Door A.
St. Michael is divided into two precincts and thus will have two different polling places. If you live west of County Rd. 19 you will vote in the Activity Center of St. Michael-Albertville High School, which is located at 5800 Jamison Ave. NE. Those living east of County Rd. 19 will vote in the gymnasium at St. Michael-Albertville’s Middle School East, which is located at 4862 Naber Ave. NE.
Hanover residents all vote at Hanover City Hall, which is located at 11250 5th St. NE.
Otsego is split into three precincts, which vote at two different polling places. Precinct 1A votes at Otsego Prairie Center, located at 8899 Nashua Ave. NE. Precincts 2A and 3 both vote at Otsego Elementary, located at 8125 River Road NE. Please use side door 4. Otsego residents who live along County Rd. 19 closer to Albertville belong to Precinct 1A, but please visit the city of Otsego’s web site for a precinct map if you don’t know which precinct you belong to.
Polls are open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m at all locations. More information about your polling place can be found on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website.
