“We’re honored to have Allianz Field be a ballot return location for Ramsey County, and to serve the second largest county in the state,” said Minnesota United CEO Chris Wright said in a statement. “It is so important to provide accessible voting options to registered voters, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and we believe Allianz Field is easily accessible to our community, whether via car, light rail, bus or on foot.”

Minnesota United officials say protocols are in place at Allianz Field to abide by COVID-19 guidelines and keep voters safe.

Voters who refuse to wear one will be sent to the curbside tent off Shields Ave.
