During the 2023 legislative session several election administration laws were changed. One in particular now allows a governing body of a statutory or home rule charter city to adopt a resolution governing the counting of write-in votes for local elective offices. The change allows election officials to count only registered write-in candidates on election night, aligning the write-in recording process with Federal, State, and County offices. The current write-in vote counting process is overly time consuming and makes unnecessary work for election judges on election night.The CIty of Carver adopted such a resolution on October 16, 2023.  Therefore, candidates for City office need to file a written request with the chief election official no later than the seventh day before the City election if the candidate wants to have the candidate’s write-in votes individually recorded.  Please contact Vicky Sons-Eiden for any questions on this process.  Contact information is at the top of the page above.
