Coon Rapids polling places are set

Coon Rapids will have several new polling places for the 2012 primary and general elections.

That’s because redistricting based on the 2010 U.S. Census has shifted ward and precinct boundaries in the city, although the number precincts, 22, remains the same.

“While many of the same polling locations are being utilized, most are being designated for different precincts,” said City Clerk Cathy Sorensen.

According to Sorensen, new polling locations include the Coon Rapids Ice Center, Bunker Hills Golf Course, Emma B. Howe YMCA, Coon Rapids American Legion and the Coon Rapids VFW.

The Anoka County Elections Department will send postcards to all registered voters in July to let them know their ward, legislative districts and polling locations, Sorensen said.

“City staff will also be working to publicize this information as much as possible via the web, CTN, Coon Rapids Herald, city newsletters and by other means,” she said.

Voter registration cards will be available at the Coon Rapids City Center for anyone not registered or who have moved since the last election, Sorensen said.
