When to Re-Register
You must re-register each time you change address, change names or do not vote for four years in a row. Update your registration by completing a new registration application.
You are encouraged to register before Election Day. To pre-register, election officials must receive your application at least three weeks before Election Day.
Register to Vote Here
You can also register to vote by checking a box on your driver’s license application or renewal form.
If you move to a new Minnesota residence, you can submit a United States Postal Service (USPS) change-of-address form. USPS will notify election officials of the change. If election officials can match the record in their system, they will update your address and mail a green confirmation postcard to you.
