During the final seven days before an Election Day, absentee voters who vote in person are allowed to place their ballots through a tabulator instead of sealing them into an envelope for later processing. This allows the voters to watch as their ballots are tabulated and to be made aware of any errors the tabulator may detect as the ballots are processed.
Be a Minnesota resident for at least 20 days on Election Day.
Maintain residence at the address on the voter registration application.
You must re-register if you have:
Moved to a different address (even if only the apartment number has changed).
Changed your name.
Have not voted once within the last four years.
In Minnesota, you can preregister up until 20 days before Election Day. If the election is within 20 days, you must register at your polling place on Election Day. Once you are registered, you will receive a postcard with your voting information, and your name will appear on the list of pre-registered voters at your polling place.
Voters may register to vote at their polling place on Election Day by showing a valid proof of residence and completing a voter registration application. Visit the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website for a complete list of acceptable proofs of residence.
