Clarification regarding Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted polling location

HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – A story in the Dec. 15 issue of Herald Journal made reference to a resolution adopted by the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School Board during its Dec. 11 meeting concerning the polling location for district elections.

The story stated in error that the polling location adopted by the board would affect the district’s 2018 election. However that is not the case, because the 2018 election is a general election, not a special election. The resolution was adopted in response to a change in Minnesota Statute 205A.11, subdivision 2, effective July 1, 2017 that affects the combined polling places for all school districts in the state for special elections.

All school districts will need to adopt resolutions by December 31 each year establishing combined polling places for any potential special elections in the upcoming year, even if the polling places never change. The school district’s combined polling places must be polling places that are used during regular general elections.

Voters in the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School District will cast ballots at their usual locations during the November 2018 general election.
