Hello, voter! Below, find everything you need to know to make your voice heard — including how to register, update your registration, get a mail ballot, vote early, and vote on Election Day.
Registering to vote: You can register to vote online with your Minnesota driver’s license or the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Online registration closes after October 13. You can check or update your registration online, too.
You can also register in-person on Election Day with one of these proofs of residence.
How to vote by mail: All Minnesota voters can request a mail ballot. You don’t need to be registered to request your ballot, but it does make it a little easier.
Once you receive your ballot, fill it out and return it as soon as you can! Ballots must be postmarked by November 3 and received by November 10. You can also return your ballot in person to the election office by 3:00 pm on November 3.
Note: Due to COVID–19, there is no need to have a witness sign your absentee ballot if you are a registered Minnesota voter. Non-registered voters do need a witness to verify their residence.
Other ways to vote: You can also vote early in-person starting September 18, either at your county election office and some other locations. More about in-person early voting →
