Registration

Am I eligible to vote?

To be eligible to vote, a person must be 18 or older on the date of the election, a U.S. citizen, and have maintained residence in Minnesota for at least 20 days before the election.

Do I need to re-register to vote?

You must re-register to vote if your name, address or apartment number changes or you have not voted in four years. You can check your registration before you vote at Check My Registration on the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, and you can register online at the same website if you discover you are not registered.

How do I register to vote on Election Day?

In Minnesota, you can register or update your registration at your polling place on Election Day. Plan ahead to find out what you need to bring to your polling place at Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State Election Day Fact Sheet. Residents who are new to Victoria or have moved since the last election will need to register in order to vote.
