The City of Plato changed to a mail-in ballot format for elections starting in 2016. This means that each registered voter in the City of Plato will receive his/her ballot in the mail 3 to 4 weeks prior to the election. There will no longer be a physical polling location for residents in the City of Plato. If you wish to vote at a physical location, you can do so at the County Office in Glencoe (please bring along the ballot you received in the mail). In-person voting can be done at this location during the seven (7) days prior to the election.
In order to receive a ballot in the mail, you must be a registered voter for the City of Plato. To become a registered voter, you need to complete and submit a Minnesota Voter Registration Application. Applications can be obtained at the City Office or the County Office.

Elections are here and you are still not registered? You can still vote. You will need to go to the County Office and complete a voter registration form. You will be provided a ballot to complete while you are there. The mail-in ballot system is very easy and convenient. There will be a step-by-step instruction sheet included along with the ballot.
If you have any questions in regard to the instructions or the mail-in ballot process, please contact the City Office.
