PROCTOR RESIDENTS EARLY IN-PERSON VOTING
Proctor residents can vote early in-person at the St. Louis County Auditor’s Office in the Duluth Courthouse at 100 N. 5th Avenue from September 18 -November 2 on the following dates and times:
Monday – Friday 8 am – 4:30pm
Saturday, October 31st 10 am – 3 pm
Monday, November 2 8 am – 5 pm
The courthouse is closed due to COVID. However, instructions and phone number are posted at entrances for voters to call the Auditor’s office, and request an absentee ballot application be brought to them. An election official will meet you at the courthouse entrance with an absentee ballot application which you will complete and give back to the election official. The election official will process your absentee ballot application and return with your absentee ballot. You can either 1) complete the ballot and return it to the election official, 2) take the application home and return it by mail or, 3) drop your ballot in the Second Street drop box at the courthouse.
Save time by filling out a printed paper absentee ballot application and having it with you when you visit the courthouse. https://www.sos.state.mn.us/media/2444/english-regular-absentee-ballot-application.pdf. You also have the option of submitting the absentee ballot application online in which case the absentee ballot will be mailed to you. You can then drop your completed ballot in person at the courthouse.
The City of Proctor will be adding an early in-person voting process for future elections.
On September 8, 2020, City Council approved the following Proclamations:
WHAT IS OUR TRANSPORTATION FUTURE, AND HOW DO WE GET THERE?
The Proctor Transportation Plan will define the community’s vision for how it would like its transportation system to look and function. A central theme is supporting the safe and efficient movement of people of all ages, abilities and incomes, as well as the safe and efficient movement of goods in and through the City of Proctor and adjacent neighborhoods.
The planning process will take place during the summer and fall of 2020, and will bring forward key ideas from previous planning efforts, gather additional input from community stakeholders, and produce a comprehensive guiding plan. The final Plan will also recommend short- and long-term strategies to implement the vision. This work will position Proctor well into the future with a vision and direction for upcoming transportation projects that meet community needs and achieve the goal of an integrated, multi-modal transportation system.
