Title

Approving the polling location changes for the Primary Election of August 11, 2020 and the November 3, 2020 General Election.

Body

WHEREAS, the elections staff completed their annual inspection of polling places and have the following recommendations for the designation of new polling places in preparation for the city and school district election, therefore

BE IT RESOLVED, Pursuant to Minnesota Statute, Section 204B.16, the Council of the City of Saint Paul  hereby approves the following list of polling precinct location changes for the Primary Election of August 11, 2020 and the General Election of November 3, 2020.

                     Current location: Kellogg Square Apartments, 111 E Kellogg Blvd, St Paul, MN 55101

Comments: Kellogg Square is a small location that will not allow social distancing standards to be met, as a result the facility was unwilling to serve as a polling place. At Landmark Center we will have the entire space to spread out and allow voters a safe voting experience.

Ward 3, Precinct 1

                     Current location: Temple of Aaron, 616 Mississippi River Blvd, St Paul, MN 55116

                     Proposed location: Urban Charter Academy or Lumen Christi for just 8/11

Comments: Temple of Aaron is unwilling to serve as a polling place until more information is known about COVID-19, we’ll reevaluate the location after the August Primary. Lumen Christi will serve as a location for the August Primary if the Urban Charter Academy is unwilling. We hope to have this resolved by 6/15/20.

                     Ward 3, Precinct 5

                     Current location: Graham Place, 1745 Graham Ave.

                     Proposed location: Graham Place, 1375 Davern St.
