Confidentiality Notice: Access to the data that you supply on your voter registration application is restricted to elections officials and to those who obtain the list for political, law enforcement and jury selection purposes.
The lists provided for these purposes do not include your exact date of birth, driver's license, state ID or social security numbers. The last four digits of your social security number, if you provide them on line 7 of the form, enjoy special protection because they are classified as private data. If you do not have a Minnesota driver's license or state ID number, both state and federal law require that you supply the last four digits of your social security number (unless you do not have one of those either). This partial number may be sent along with your name and date of birth to the Social Security Administration, via the Department of Public Safety, to verify your identity.
If you possess a Minnesota driver’s license, state ID, or social security number, but do not provide it, your application may be considered incomplete and may not be processed. Your local election official may contact you to try to obtain one of these numbers. If you do not provide one, you may be required to complete a new voter registration application or show ID at your polling place before being allowed to vote.
