Absentee Voting Encouraged for General Election


General Election is Tuesday, August 18

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic will still be with us when the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe general election is held on August 18. In order to reduce traffic at the polls, Band members are encouraged to vote by absentee ballot or to vote early at the Election Office in the District I Community Center.

The Election Office will be open during regular business hours beginning July 17, 2020, through election day, August 18.

Polling places in all districts will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.

Polling places are community centers in Districts I, II, IIa, and III (Aazhoomog), and All Nations Church in Minneapolis for urban Band members.

Beginning on July 17, staff will be in the election office at the District I Community Center Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. You can stop by to vote early!

If you do need to vote at the polling place on August 18, please continue to practice social distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands, and use hand sanitizer.

If you have questions or would like an absentee ballot request form, please call Deanna Sam at 320-532-7586 or 320-279-0178, or email deanna.sam@millelacsband.com. You can also use the form that is printed on page 12.
