March 3, 2020 - Presidential Nomination Primary
In 2020, all Minnesota voting precincts will hold a Presidential Nomination Primary on Tuesday, March 3, 2020. The purpose of the Presidential Nomination Primary is for voters who identify with a major political party, to indicate which candidate they want their party to nominate for the November General Election. Only major party presidential candidates participate and each party will have a separate ballot. A voter must request the ballot of the party of their choice. If a voter refuses to select a party, they will not be able to vote in the Presidential Nomination Primary. Registered voters will be able to vote at their regular polling place on Election Day, or at City Hall by absentee ballot starting January 17, 2020.
All other State offices that require a primary election will be on the August 11 primary ballot.

What's On My Ballot?
View a sample ballot, search for candidate filings and more at mnvotes.org. The sample ballot shows a list of the candidates and ballot questions you'll be voting on. Information is posted about 45 days before an election.
Voting assistance is available at each polling place. Ask an election judge to help you:
- Read or mark your ballot
- Obtain a magnifying device or chair
- Vote at the curb, if you are unable to leave your car
- Demonstrate voter assist terminal
Voters with Disabilities
Federal legislation passed by Congress, the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), requires that each polling place be equipped with a voter assist terminal for individuals with disabilities. This equipment is designed to provide voters with disabilities the opportunity to vote independently and privately.
The voting process remains the same for voters who do not need the assistance for marking a ballot. Votes are tallied by the ballot counter to produce precinct results.
