In March, Minnesota will hold a presidential nomination primary to select each major party's nominee for president. Any voter registered in Minnesota can complete a ballot. You may pre-register through Feb. 13, or register on the presidential primary election day at your polling location.

Vote on March 5, 2024

  • Voters must be at least 18 years old by March 5, 2024.
  • Polling place hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Find your polling place and learn how to vote early at mnvotes.org.


Absentee Voting Begins Jan. 19, 2024

  • Vote at City Hall Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 :30 p.m. (extended hours Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Monday, March 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
  • Vote at the Anoka County Government Center.

Precinct Caucuses are Feb. 27 at 7 p.m.

  • Precinct caucuses and local/state nominating conventions will still take place for other party business.
  • Precinct caucuses are meetings run by state political parties. They are the first in a series where parties may endorse candidates, select delegates, and set goals and priorities (party platform).
  • Caucus locations will be posted shortly before the caucus date at mnvotes.org.


On the Ballot

  • Only major political parties are allowed to participate; each party has its own ballot with only their candidates listed.
  • You may only request one party’s ballot.
  • Your ballot will only list nominees for president for the party you requested.
  • If a voter refuses to select a party, they will not be able to vote in the presidential primary.
  • A record of which party’s ballot you selected will be made available to the chair of the major political party whose ballot you selected.
  • Each major party chair will submit a list of candidates for their party and determine if a write-in space is on the party’s ballot.
  • The presidential nomination primary results are binding and determine Minnesota’s delegates for each major party.
