Tomorrow is National Voter Registration Day
Make sure you’re ready to vote in the presidential primary
Tomorrow, Sept. 24, is National Voter Registration day. With less than six months to go until the March 3 presidential primary here in Minnesota, it’s a good time to remember to register.
If you’ve never voted before and need to register, now is the perfect time. If it’s been more than four years since you last voted, or you’ve moved or changed your name since you last registered, you’ll also need to re-register.
All voters must register prior to voting. They can do one of the following:
- Pre-register online or by submitting a paper application in person or by mail.
- Register at the polls.
Get ready for the presidential primary
Minnesota is one of the “Super Tuesday” states voting in early March, and for the first time in years the state will have a presidential primary. There will be separate ballots for each major party in the presidential primary and voters need to choose which one to complete. The party voters choose will not be public information, though it will be made available to each major party.
More information on the presidential primary is on the Minneapolis Elections and Voter Services website.
The deadline for pre-registering for the March 3 presidential primary is Feb. 11. Check to see if you’re registered at mnvotes.sos.state.mn.us/VoterStatus.aspx.
