Minnesota Voter Registration Refresher

We, the residents of the Great State of Minnesota, are lucky to have same-day voter registration. This is one of only six states in which you can walk into your polling place on election day and sign up right then and there with proof of residence in hand. I did it last election cycle with my cell phone bill. So in case you forgot to re-register the last time you moved, it’s nice and easy for you. (Not coincidentally, we also have the highest voter turnout in the nation.)

So while that’s convenient, there will be a lot of people probably doing the same on November 4. You can save yourself a little time at the polls, which will surely be busy, by registering ahead of time.

All of this information is provided by the Minnesota Secretary of State, whom you can call at 651-215-1440 or 1-877-600-VOTE (8683).

    Thank you for providing this. I’m an Election Judge in South Minneapolis. Ward 6-4. Even with the small turn out this month we same day registered around 27 of the 173 people total who voted. In November we are expecting to same day register over 500 people and have a total vote count around 2000. Coming in prepared helps speed up the process for all of us.

    Thanks for the reminder. I have to reregister since we moved.
