Before you can vote, you must register. In Minnesota, you may register at least 20 days before election day or on election day at your polling place. To be eligible to register and vote in Minnesota you must:
Be at least 18-years-old on election day
Be a citizen of the United States
Have resided in Minnesota for 20 days immediately preceding election day
Have any felony conviction record discharged, expired, or completed
Not be under court-ordered guardianship where a court has revoked your voting rights

Paper Submission: 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 and submitting another Voter Registration Application (PDF).
Same day registration - you can register or update your registration when you vote, whether that is at your polling place on Election Day or at an early voting location. You will need proof of residence to register.
