Election Information

The City of Long Lake administers city (Mayor and Council Member offices), school district, state and federal elections for its residents in even years.  The polling place for all residents is City Hall located at 450 Virginia Avenue, Long Lake, MN  55356.

Please note that there are large areas of the cities of Orono and Medina that fall under the Long Lake mailing zip code, which can cause some residency confusion for election purposes.  If you receive bills for city services (water, sewer, garbage or recycling) from Orono or Medina but use a Long Lake zip code for your mailing address, you are not a Long Lake resident and would need to contact your city of residence to determine your voting/polling location.

Contact the City Clerk with any election-related questions you may have.
