Marching orders for Minneapolis

If you are going to be volunteering on election day, here are your marching orders :)

apologies for militarized terms when referring to campaigns, but - our wars abroad are an extension of our politics and we need to use our political power in a very intentional way if we mean to create space for peace, diplomacy, sustainability, and human survival!

Cast an Absentee Ballot in Person:



From the Hennepin County Elections website:
You may vote by absentee ballot if:

• you are going to be absent from the precinct on election day
• illness or disability prevents your going to the polling place
• religious discipline or observance prohibits your attendance at the polling place
• you are an election judge in another precinct
<snip>

You may vote in person at the Hennepin County Government Center during normal office hours, on the Saturday before the election between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM, or on the Monday before the election until 5:00 PM;


I bolded the line with the reasoning you should use when you cast your absentee ballot - you may be assigned to volunteer in another precinct by the political campaign, union, or non-profit you are working with.

Know your precinct polling place and your precinct's boundaries:

Send me an e-mail and let me know what you are doing on election day - I am curious!

If you don't know what to do, but would like to help and you live in or are interested in Minneapolis Wards Ward 6 or Ward 7 - especially Whittier, Stevens Square, Loring Park and Wedge/Lowry Hill East neighborhoods - you are invited to:

"One Week Out" planning meeting and social
India House on Eat Street
1400 Nicollet Ave

- maybe with a venue change at 10 PM to 'King and I', just like last time, but better!
