Elections and Voting

Presidential Nomination Primary - March 5, 2024

In 2016, legislation was passed establishing a Presidential Nomination Primary (PNP).  The first PNP election since that legislation passed was in 2020 and the next one will take place on Tuesday, March 5, 2024. Only parties considered to be “major” parties in the state of Minnesota are allowed to participate in the PNP. For 2024, those include the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, Legal Marijuana Now Party and the Republican Party of Minnesota. Registered voters will be able to vote at their polling place on March 5, or by absentee ballot in the 46 days before the Election (starting January 19, 2024). A voter must request the ballot of the party of their choice. If a voter refuses to select a party, they will not be able to vote in the PNP. A voter’s choice of party ballot will be recorded and is private data. However, a list will be provided to the chair of each major political party of voters who selected that party. How a voter voted on the ballot will be secret. The PNP results must bind the election of delegates in each party. Counties and municipalities will be reimbursed by the state for the primary costs. On Election Day all polling places will be open from 7:00 am – 8:00 pm.  

Ramsey residents may vote in-person absentee at the Ramsey Municipal Center or the Anoka County Government Center. Absentee balloting begins Friday, January 19, from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. City Hall will also be open for absentee voting on Saturday, March 2, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and on Monday, March 4, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. You may also vote absentee via U.S. mail by contacting Anoka County Elections at 763-324-1300 or by requesting a ballot online at www.sos.state.mn.us.
