The City of Delano is available to answer your questions about voter registration and elections. The city clerk administers city, state and federal elections. 

The next city-administered elections will be Aug. 14, 2018 and Nov. 6, 2018 (for the State Primary and General Election respectively).

Sample Ballots, Poll Finder and More

  • A list of candidates and questions that will appear on your ballot;
  • A polling place finder with the address for your polling place;
  • A sample ballot;

  • An explanation of voter registration procedures, with a link to information about the status of your own registration and the deadline to register or re-register if you have moved since the last time you voted.

Voter Assistance
If you need help casting your ballot, ask the election judges for assistance. They can help you in several ways.

  • Read or mark a ballot.
  • Obtain a magnifying device or a chair to use in the voting booth.
  • Vote at the curb.

If you have a permanent disability, contact City Hall at 763-972-4420 to learn about how to apply for an absentee ballot.

Voting Machines for People with Disabilities 
Over the past several years, the city has equipped our polls with machines that make it easier for people with disabilities to vote independently and more privately than in the past.

If you need to use one of these special voting machine because you have a disability, let the election judges know on election day.  They will be happy to to give you a demonstration. 

More About the Machines: These special machines are better suited for people who have any type of disability that makes it difficult to mark a ballot. When using the machine, voters will have the option of listening to an audio version of the ballot through earphones or viewing the ballot on a screen that has options for reverse contrast and larger type. The audio description can be used alone or in conjunction with a screen version of the ballot. The vote will be recorded by touch screen, key pad or other adaptive method.
