How to Register on Election Day

You can register at your polling location on Election Day. If you already registered to vote, you do not need to register again unless you changed your name, moved to a different address or have not voted within the last four years.

To register on Elections Day, you must have been a Minnesota resident for at least 20 days and show proof of residence within the precinct. To prove you live in the precinct, bring either of the following showing your current name and address:

  • Valid Minnesota driver's license or learner's permit (or receipt with address)
  • Valid Minnesota identification card (or receipt with address)
  • Tribal ID card with name, current address, signature, and picture issued by the tribal government of a tribe recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Does your identification card list a previous address? Voters must show both one photo ID and one document. The ID must contain the voter's name, photo, and can be expired. The document must have the voter's current name and address in the precinct and can be shown electronically or on paper.
