Voting will be easier with new e-poll books

Hennepin County is about to make voting on Election Day a lot easier for residents

Elections officials will unveil a new e-pollbook system this election season in all Hennepin County cities except Minneapolis, which will see this change in 2017. Please help us prepare voters for primary day.

Hennepin County is one of two counties in the state to introduce this new technology.


Join Hennepin County Elections Manager Ginny Gelms as she demonstrates how the new e-poll books will be used, beginning with the upcoming Minnesota primary day. The new technology will be available for media to test during the demonstration as well.


St. Louis Park City Council chambers, 5005 Minnetonka Boulevard.


Thursday, August 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
