100,000+ Minnesotans have taken advantage of state's online voter registration system

June 16, 2016

Earlier this week Secretary Simon announced an important milestone: since its launch in September 2013, more than 100,000 Minnesotans have taken advantage of the state’s online voter registration system!

The voter registration process in Minnesota is easier and more convenient than ever before. Eligible Minnesotans can register to vote at Minnesotans who are already registered to vote can confirm that their voter registration information is up to date at, and should encourage their friends, family and co-workers to do the same. 

Interestingly, in perhaps the clearest indication yet that Minnesotans are paying close attention to the 2016 election, nearly half of the total number of online voter registrations processed — 49,711 registrations — have taken place this year alone.

Readers may remember that, in February, Secretary Simon challenged the people of Minnesota and the thousands of nonprofits and businesses across the state to return Minnesota back to number one in voter turnout this November, and it’s clear Minnesotans are stepping up to the challenge.
