Conducting City Business

  1. Absentee Voting


    Absentee voting for the August primary will be conducted at the Mary Ann Young Center, 9150 Central Avenue NE. This is a change from past elections where absentee voting was held at Blaine City Hall. The Mary Ann Young Center (MAYC) opened in February but had to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This facility will work very well to provide additional space for absentee voting and yet accommodate any phased reopening plans for MAYC.

    Plans are in place to provide a small number of face masks for voters who do not bring their own but would like to use one as well as disinfecting pens and other measures. Elections officials will be following the CDC recommendations for polling places with additional guidance from the MN Department of Health on social distancing, cleaning, and other ways to reduce the possible spread within the polling place.
     
    Voters can take advantage of voting by mail to help reduce spread of disease. Voting from home is easy and available to any Minnesota voter through the absentee balloting system. For more information on absentee voting or other voting-related questions contact Blaine Elections Office at Elections@BlaineMN.gov or 763-717-2737.

    To request a ballot by mail to vote from home go to MNVotes.org.
  2. Blaine City Hall is Open by Appointment Only


    Most city business can still be conducted remotely by contacting staff by email or phone. You can find contact information at BlaineMN.gov/Directory. Have other concerns that would be better addressed in person? Blaine City Hall is now open by appointment only.

    The election's office is available for in-person appointments for:
    • Register to Vote
    • Where do I vote?

    Please remember that everyone visiting city hall must wear a face mask before entering city hall and at all times while in the building. If you do not have a face mask, the city will provide a disposable one to you.
