Final day of voter pre-registration Tues. Oct. 14

Are you registered to vote? Today, Tuesday Oct. 14, is the final day to pre-register before the Nov. 4 General Election.

Easy to use online tools available through can help make sure you are registered and ready for Election Day. The website links to a voter registration lookup tool, which lets voters confirm they are registered to vote under their current name and address. Even if you've registered before, you must re-register if you move, change your name, or have not voted in the past four years. You can register or update your registration by using the online application, or by filling out and submitting by mail or in person a registration application available at city and county government offices and in multiple languages online. Paper registrations are due by 5 pm today. Registrations completed online must be done by midnight to be effective for the Nov. 4 election.

Additional online tools linked through the City’s elections website make it possible for voters to find their polling place and can provide information on how to register to vote. There are also links to get a list of candidates, ballot questions and a sample ballot for individual precincts.

Voters who miss the deadline to pre-register may still be able to vote. In Minnesota individuals may register at the polls on Election Day by providing one of the forms of identification required by Minnesota law. Please allow extra time at the polls to register. Review the list of allowable forms of identification required to register and vote on Election Day to make sure you'll be ready to vote.
