The Crystal City Council on June 16 approved a resolution designating the polling locations for the remaining elections in 2020, locations that will be different from those utilized in the past.

With the Primary Election scheduled for Aug. 11 and the General Election slated for Nov. 3, residents who intend on voting at the polls will need to familiarize themselves with the new locations.

The city is also in the process of determining the number of election judges, according to City Clerk Chrissy Serres.

“We are still determining how many judges we need and are following Hennepin County’s and the State Department of Health’s guidelines for keeping voters and judges safe,” Serres said.

Polling locations

The city has made changes in all the precincts in Ward 1 and to one precinct location in each of Ward 2, 3 and 4.

There have also been locations that have been combined.

In the past election, all of the precincts in Ward 1 voted at the Neill Elementary School.

In 2020, all of the precincts in the ward will vote at the FAIR School, 3915 Adair Ave. N.

In Ward 2, Precinct 1, voters will cast their ballots at the Crystal Community Center, 4800 Douglas Dr. N. In the past election, voters from this precinct voted at Brunswick United Methodist Church, 6122 42nd Ave. N.

In Ward 2, Precinct 2, votes will be cast at the Crystal City Hall, 4141 Douglas Dr. N., which is unchanged from the last election. However, this location will also include voters from Ward 2, Precinct 3.
