Voter Registration

You must be registered before you can vote in Minnesota. Unless you change your address, change your name, or fail to vote at least once every four years, your voter registration is permanent. You do not need to declare your political party to register to vote.

After you register, you will be ready to vote in all elections. A postcard will be sent to you confirming your registration and telling you where to vote.

You can register and vote if you:
• Will be at least 18 years old on election day.
• Are a citizen of the United States.
• Will have lived in Minnesota for 20 days immediately preceding election day.
• Are not under a court-ordered guardianship in which the court order
  revoked your right to vote.
• Have not been found by a court to be legally incompetent to vote.
• Have the right to vote because, if you have been convicted of a felony,
  your felony sentence has expired (been completed) or you have been
  discharged from your sentence.
