Do I need to wear a mask to the polls?
- Maybe. There's currently a face mask requirement at polling places; but the Minnesota Voters Alliance and Republican lawmakers are suing in federal court to block the requirement. The lawsuit's outcome may determine whether or not you need to wear a mask at the polls this fall. Ahead of Election Day, contact your county election office to ensure that you know whether a mask is required at your polling location.
