How Do I Register to vote?
Before you can vote, you must register. In Minnesota, you may register before election day, or on election day at your polling place. Your registration remains current until you move, change your name, or do not vote for four consecutive years. You may update your registration information by completing another voter registration application.
Am I eligible to vote?
You may register and vote in Minnesota on the next election day if you:
- will be at least 18 years old on election day
- are a citizen of the United States
- will have resided in Minnesota for 20 days immediately preceding election day
- have any felony conviction record discharged, expired, or completed
- are not under court-ordered guardianship where a court has revoked your voting rights
- have not been ruled legally incompetent by a court of law
Registering before Election Day
You may pre-register to vote at least 20 days prior to any election by completing a voter registration application and submitting it by mail or in person to the Cass County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office at the Courthouse in Walker.
Registering on Election Day
To register on election day, you must have proof of residence in the precinct. Only proofs authorized by law may be used. A voter can use one of the methods described on the Election day registration poster.
