The primary election is here, and Minnesotans will be voting for who they want to run for state senator, district representatives and more.
If you plan on heading to the polls Tuesday, Aug. 11, here is what you need to know:
How do I register?
If not already registered, eligible individuals can register to vote in person on the day of the primary.
How do I vote?
Voting early by mail should have been mailed in no later than Tuesday, Aug. 4. If the ballot was not mailed in on time, voters can drop off the ballot at the address listed on their return envelope on or before Aug. 11.
Polling places are usually open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
What should I bring?
If your voter registration is current and active, meaning you were registered to vote at least 21 days before the voting day and haven't moved or changed names, an identification card isn't required. If that is not the case, you will need to show proof of residence before voting.
