Voter Pre-Registration Deadline Quickly Approaching—Tuesday, October 16

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Oct. 12, 2012—Secretary of State Mark Ritchie today reminded Minnesotans that they only have until end of business on Tuesday, October 16  to pre-register to vote for the November 6  General Election.  To pre-register a voter’s registration application must be received by the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State or their county/municipal election official on or before Tuesday.

"Minnesotans should use the online voter registration lookup at to see if their registration is current and to download a voter registration application, if needed,” said Secretary Ritchie.  “If voters miss this deadline, they can still register at their polling place on Election Day.”
