Prepare to vote
Are you registered to vote? Take a few steps to make your voting experience as smooth as possible.
1. Register to vote at mnvotes.gov.
Already registered? It’s still a good idea to confirm your registration is correct and up to date. You will need to update your registration if you’ve moved or changed your name since the last time you voted.
