A revised list of Rochester polling locations was approved Monday.

Fourteen precincts throughout the six wards were moved based on former sites being unavailable or posing new challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Council member Michael Wojcik, the only council incumbent seeking re-election this year, said the changes will need to be communicated to voters as the Aug. 11 primary approaches.

“I know nobody is completely happy with these changes,” he said.

The late adjustments are made possible by state legislation, which gave cities until July 1 to change polling sites, if needed.

Rochester voters can find their city ward and polling precinct by entering their address into the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website at https://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/.
