Election Day info and reminders

MGN

Election Day 2020 is finally here. A record-breaking 100 million Americans have already cast their ballots this voting season through early voting, and more will vote in-person today in what is sure to be a historic election cycle.

If you’re voting in person today, don’t forget to go to your neighborhood polling place instead of an early voting center. Also, remember to bring your mask (and wear some comfortable shoes).

Polls are open from 7 am to 8 pm. As long as you’re in line by 8 pm, you can vote, even if you do not reach the front of the line until after 8 pm.

If you recently mailed in your ballot, you can track it online to confirm it has been accepted. If it hasn’t, make a plan to go to the polls before 8 pm today. An election judge will cancel your ballot and issue you a new one. To track your ballot go here: mnvotes.org/track

  • U.S. President

REGISTER TO VOTE

Still not registered to vote? You can still register on Election Day. The two easiest ways are to bring with you to your polling place a valid Minnesota driver’s license, learner’s permit or ID, or Tribal ID with name, address, photo and signature; or bring a Photo ID and a document with current name and address (such as a phone or electric bill).
