Save Time on Election Day, Register to Vote Today

Election 2018

Is there a registration deadline?

Unlike many states, in Minnesota you can wait until Election Day to register to vote. However, to save you time we encourage you to register before Election Day either online at or by completing a Voter Registration application. The deadline to preregister to vote is October 23 - it will save you time at the polling place!

Who can register and vote in Minnesota?

  • You must be a A U.S. citizen.
  • You must be at least 18 years old on Election Day.
  • You must be a resident of Minnesota for 20 days.
  • You must be finished with all parts of any felony sentence.
  • You can vote while under guardianship unless a judge specifically has revoked your right to vote.
  • You cannot vote if a court has ruled that you are legally incompetent.

Do I have to register if I move or change names?

You must re-register each time you change address, change your name or have not voted at least once during a four-year period. You can easily update your registration by completing a new registration application.

Can I register when I renew my driver’s license or state ID?

The Minnesota Driver’s License/Identification Card application has a section you can complete should you wish to register to vote. You must re-register when you change your name or address and can do so right on the application form. 

Can I register when I change addresses with U.S. Postal Service?

If you move to a new Minnesota residence, you can submit a United States Postal Service (USPS) change-of-address form. USPS will notify election officials of the change. If election officials can match the record in their system, they will update your address and mail a green confirmation postcard to you.

For more information about Voter Registration, visit or or contact City Hall at or 763-717-2737.
