Elections

Would you like to serve as an Election Judge?

The City of Little Canada is looking for Election Judges to work during the General Election on Tuesday, November 3.  We need judges for either a full day shift (6am - close, approximately 10pm) or the late half day shift (1:30pm - close).  

Election judges need to be at the assigned polling location by 6:00 a.m. and will need to stay after the polls close at 8:00 p.m. until all of the election paperwork is complete.  A half-day option is available for judges who would rather not work a full day.  Please indicate your preference on the attached application form.  Election judges are required to complete a paid two-hour training session prior to Election Day that can be done online or in-person.  Election judges in Little Canada are paid $11.00/hour.

If you would like to serve as an Election Judge, please complete the Election Judge Application and Direct Deposit/Tax form and return to the City Clerk, Heidi Heller as soon as possible.  More information is available here or contacts Heidi Heller at 651-766-4047 or heidi.heller@littlecanadamn.org

Polling Location Change - Precinct 1 Going Back to RAMS for November 3 Election

Precinct 1 voters will be going back to their normal location at Roseville Area Middle School (RAMS), 15 County Road B2 East for the November General Election.  There was construction at the middle school over the summer so the polling place change during the August Election was only temporary. 

2020 General Election

The 2020 General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.  Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  

Visit the Ramsey County Election’s website or the Minnesota Votes Website for election and voting information.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARLY VOTING AND ABSENTEE VOTING?
Early Voting was approved by the MN Legislature and has been available in Minnesota since the 2016 elections.  Early Voting is different from Absentee Ballot Voting in that it is only available during the 7 days prior to Election Day, and voters put their completed ballot directly into the ballot scanner (instead of into an Absentee Ballot envelope).  The Early Voting ballots are scanned immediately, but not counted until Election Day.  Absentee Ballot envelopes are opened by elections staff and scanned up to a week before Election Day, but are not counted until Election Day.  In 2020, due to the huge increase in absentee voting, Absentee Ballots may be opened beginning 14 days before the election.
