The deadline to pre-reg- ister is October 12. State law requires Minnesotans to be registered at their current address before they are allowed to vote. Registrations remain current until voters move or change their names. Voters must also re-regis- ter if they have not voted in the last four years. "Registering to vote takes minutes to complete and will save you time at the polls on Nov. 2." Ritchie said. "Get registered, get informed, and go vote this fall.

Voters can use the office's online Voter Registration Lookup at to quickly learn whether they are registered at their current address. The service also pro- vides links to other voter resources such as how to register, the dates of the next election, and polling place location information. Minnesotans may register to vote by completing a voter registration application and submitting it to their county auditor's office or the Office of the Secretary of State. Applications are available online at or at county gov- ernment offices and public libraries. Those who register prior to the deadline will not have to register again on Election Day. Minnesota allows voters to register on Election Day as long as they provide proper proof of residence.
