Elections & Voting

Election Day is in the fall of every even-numbered year. In order to be eligible to vote in an election, you must be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years of age, a resident of the State of Minnesota for at least 20 days, and properly registered. Check back closer to Election Day as more information will be added to this webpage.  You may also find more information on Chisago County's website

 Where do I register to vote?

New residents in the City as well as people who have relocated within the City are encouraged to save time at the polling place by pre-registering to vote.  You may register online via the Secretary of State's website or contact Chisago County Elections to register by mail.  Pre-registration must be completed at least 20 days before an upcoming election.  If you wait until Election Day to register, you must prove you live in Chisago City by showing your Minnesota driver's license or ID card.  If your current address is not on your license or ID card, you must bring along a utility bill that shows your name and current address in the precinct.  Utility bills that can be used include gas, electric, water, cable TV, solid waste, or sewer bills.  You may also verify your residency by bringing a registered voter from your precinct to vouch for you.

 Where is the voting location?

On Election Day, all Chisago City residents vote at the Chisago Community Center, located at 10825 Lake Blvd.  Polls open at 7 AM and close at 8 PM.  Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Chisago City Hall at 651-257-4162.
