Voting in Minnesota FAQ

Here are some facts for Minnesota Voters.  Tomorrow is the day, exercise your right to vote!

•You can register or update your registration on Election Day by providing a proof of residence.

• Most polling places open at 7am, but all polling places close at 8pm. If you are in line outside your polling place by 8pm on election night, you will still be allowed to vote. Those arriving after 8pm will not be allowed to vote. Check your poll location using this link: http://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/

• MN residents can take time off from their jobs for the purpose of voting without penalties or reductions in their pay, personal leave, or vacation time. Visit the following website for the Minnesota Voter’s Bill of rights:http://www.sos.state.mn.us/index.aspx?page=1603

• Not voting on a constitutional amendment is the same as voting NO. Constitutional amendments by law must be passed by a majority of all the voters who vote on Election Day.

• If you vote in only one race and decide to leave all others blank, your vote will still be counted.
