Local Cities Prepare for Presidential Primary
Local city clerks are getting ready for the presidential primary. At Brooklyn Park’s City Hall, getting ready for Super Tuesday by March 3 is a big job. Minnesota is one of 14 states holding presidential primaries that day. The state used to hold party-run caucuses, but the state moved away from that with legislation in 2016.
“It hasn’t happened since 1992,” says City Clerk Devin Montero of the primary. “This is kind of unique.”
Brooklyn Park is also planning to raise awareness of the upcoming election. For example, they are changing the traditional “I Vote” stickers to special stickers that say “I Voted Presidential Nomination” for the first 2,000 voters.
Voters can vote absentee from January 17 through March 2. You can also vote on the day of the primary, March 3.
