Tuesday marks Minneapolis deadline to pre-register to vote in municipal election

Tuesday, Oct. 12 marks the deadline for Minneapolis voters to pre-register to vote in the upcoming November municipal election.

Pre-registering helps ensure a smooth and quick experience for residents, without having to bring any additional documents to vote, city officials said.

Voters can also wait until Election Day to register to vote in Minnesota, unlike other states. However, the city of Minneapolis encourages voters to be registered before Election Day in order to save time at the polling place.

Voters can register online until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday. Those who plan on dropping off their paper registrations at election offices on Tuesday must do that by 5 p.m. City residents can check their registration online to confirm they are registered before the election.

Anyone who misses Tuesday’s pre-registration deadline can register in person at the Early Vote Center or at their respective polling place on Election Day. Individuals will need to bring proof of residence with them to register.
