Mahnomen, MN — As of yesterday morning, more than 1,300 mail in ballots had been received and counted in Mahnomen County heading into today‚Äôs big election day. That means roughly 45% of registered voters in the county had already cast their ballot. The City of Mahnomen, which has 569 registered voters, along with Pembina Township, 275 registered voters, and City of Bejou, 42 registered voters, will still have active polling places today while the rest of the cities and townships were mail-in balloting only. However, people in those other cities and townships with mail balloting must cast their ballot in-person at the Mahnomen County Courthouse by 3pm for it to be counted. Mahnomen County Auditor Jim Lee says no appointments are necessary and they have two secure voting areas available.

For City of Mahnomen Residents, Julie Hanson is running unopposed for Mayor while Patrick Blue, Shawn Moore, Kelly Phillips, and Duance Schouveiller are competing for two council positions. Another race of interest is for Mahnomen County Commissioner. Robert Durant is facing off against Darvin Schoenborn for District 1. David Geray and Karen Ahmann are running unopposed for their respective districts.
