Elections

COVID-19: We are encouraging voters to vote by mail using an absentee ballot. Voters who cast a ballot on Election Day are encouraged to follow CDC guidelines and MDH guidance, such as maintaining six feet of distance between voters and wearing a face mask. Curbside voting is available for anyone who cannot enter the polling place for any reason, including concerns for their health. Curbside voting allows a voter to register to vote and vote without leaving their vehicle. 

Polling Place Changes: The City of New Brighton is unable to use several facilities normally used as polling places due to COVID-19. The New Brighton City Council approved the following replacement polling places at their June 23, 2020 City Council meeting.
