Voter Registration

Are you Registered to Vote?

It is highly recommended that if you need to register to vote, that you do so PRIOR to Election Day.

Your registration remains current until you change residence, change your name, or do not vote in four consecutive years. Voter registration applications are available at:

If you are unable to pre-register and need to register on Election Day, know that you MUST provide one of the following as proof of residence.

  • A valid MN Driver’s License, ID card, or permit with current address.
  • A photo ID that does not have your current address ALONG WITH a document that DOES have your current address.  Eligible Utility Bills: gas, electric, solid waste, water, sewer, phone, cell phone, television or internet.
  • A yellow receipt for a valid MN driver’s license, MN ID card or permit with current address.
  • A tribal ID card containing you name, current address, signature and photo (tribe must be recognized by the BIA).
  • Vouching: a registered voter in you precinct or  an employee of a residential facility where you reside (i.e nursing home, group home, battered women’s shelter, homeless shelter, etc.) who will confirm your address and a signed oath at your polling place. The person vouching must be a registered voter who was not vouched for on the same day.
