Election Day is Nov. 8. Early voting will begin Sept. 23. There are two questions about the local option sales tax on the ballot: 1. “Shall the City of Edina be authorized to impose a one-half of one percent (0.5%) sales and use tax for up to 19 years for $21.6 million in improvements at Braemar Park and Arena and associated bonding costs?” 2. “Shall the City of Edina be authorized to impose a one-half of one percent (0.5%) sales and use tax for up to 19 years for $17.7 million in improvements at Fred Richards Park and associated bonding costs?” A half-percent sales tax would be collected if voters approve one or both questions. The half-cent sales tax amounts to 5 cents on a $10 purchase and would be paid by residents and nonresidents alike. There will be three ways to vote on the sales tax referendum:
Vote in person on Election Day
Residents can vote at their local polling place as part of the General Election on Nov. 8.
You must be a registered voter to cast your ballot. Not yet registered? You can save time and register now, or register at the polls on Election Day.
Vote early by absentee ballot
You can apply to have an absentee ballot mailed to you at bit.ly/MNAbsentee. If voting by mail, you will need a registered Minnesota voter or a notary to act as a witness when you vote and complete your ballot. Completed ballots must be received by Hennepin County by Election Day to count.
