To be eligible to vote in Sartell, you:
· Must be a U.S. citizen
· Must be at least 18 years old on election day

To avoid delays on election day, please prepare by doing the following:
- Preregister – You can minimize your time waiting in line by getting preregistered. To do so you must submit a completed registration application to your county auditor’s office. Applications are available online, at city hall or from your County Auditors’ offices. The application must be received by your county auditor by 5 p.m., 21 days before election day.
- Know where your polling place is located – You will only be allowed to vote at the polling location for the precinct in which you reside. Find your polling place here!
- Plan to vote in the late morning or early afternoon – Most polling places see a significant increase in voters during the early morning hours (7 a.m to 9 a.m.) and again in the evening (6 p.m. to 8 p.m.). To avoid the possibility of long lines, try to go to your polling place during the middle portion of the day. Minnesota Statutes 204C.04 Subdivision 1 states: “Every employee who is eligible to vote in an election has the right to be absent from work for the purpose of voting during the morning of the day of that election, without penalty or deduction from salary of wages because of the absence.”
- Bring proper documentation – If you fail to preregister, you will need to register at your polling place. Make certain that you have the appropriate identification and documentation with you when you arrive at the polls. Check here for a complete list of the authorized proofs of residence. ONLY the documents listed will be accepted by the election judges on election day.
In Minnesota, you do not have to wait until election day to vote – you can vote early with an absentee ballot.
- Vote Absentee – Absentee voting will be available at your county auditor’s office. You may vote in person by visiting the auditor’s office during regular business hours, or if you prefer, you may have the ballot materials sent to you. Click here for more information on absentee voting. Each county will offer extended hours to conduct additional absentee voting at their offices on the Saturday immediately preceding the election from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., and again on the Monday before the election until 5 p.m. Please do not contact the city for these materials. You will need to get them from the appropriate county for the precinct in which you reside. The phone numbers are show below:
