UPDATE: Low Turnout In Minnesota's Primary Election So Far

Posted: Updated:


There's still plenty of time for Minnesota voters to hit the polls for today's primary election.

Most polls close around 8:00 tonight.

The Secretary of State's Office is projecting only 10 to 15% of Minnesota’s registered voters will cast a ballot.

Closer to home in Clay County, Auditor Lori Johnson says poll officials are reporting a very low turnout at those locations.


Minnesota voters will be hitting the polls Tuesday to decide the contested GOP races for governor and U.S. Senate, along with dozens of local contests for both political parties.

It's the statewide primary election.

Most polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., But towns with fewer than 500 people can open polls as late as 10 a.m.

New voters, or those who have not voted in at least four years, must bring an ID.

And remember in primary elections, voters are only allowed to vote for candidates of one political party.
