To vote you must be:
You must re-register each time you change address, change names or do not vote at least once during a four-year period. Update your registration by completing a new registration application.
Unlike many states, you can wait until Election Day to register in Minnesota. However, we encourage you to register before Election Day—it will save you time at the polling place.
You can pre-register to vote as a 16- or 17-year-old in Minnesota. You must be 18 years old before voting.
You can register to vote by checking a box on your driver’s license or state ID application or renewal form.
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.
Minnesota does not have political party registration. Voters are not asked to publicly declare affiliation with a political party.
Proof of registration can be obtained from your county election office.
If you note a typo in your name on the confirmation postcard you receive after registering, contact your county election office.
