Hi Minnesota, if you want to vote  in the 2022 midterm elections there   are three steps you need to take.

Register,  make your plan, and of course, vote.   Lets start with getting registered. If you have a  Minnesota ID or drivers license, you can register   online.

If not, you’ll need to print out an  application form and mail it in. Links to both   are at But either way  you register, you need to do it by October 18th.   If you miss that deadline though, don’t  worry.

You can still register in person   at your polling place on election day. Then it’s time to make your plan   for how you’re going to vote. If you’re going to be out of town on election   day or just want to vote early from the comfort of  your own couch, you can request that your ballot   be mailed to you.

There’s no official deadline to  request an absentee ballot, but the sooner you ask   for one, the sooner you can get it, fill it out,  and mail it back or drop it off at your county   elections office no later than November 8th. You can also vote in person early from September   23rd through November 7th at your county  elections office. You can find all those   locations and their hours at this link.

Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls are open from 7am to 8pm.   If you’re registering at your polling place on  election day, you’ll need to bring an ID with   you. This can be a photo ID with your current  address, like a Minnesota drivers license,   state ID, passport, or tribal ID. If you don’t  have that, you can bring any photo ID plus a proof   of your current address, like a utility bill,  bank statement, paycheck, lease, or student   ID plus your university housing list.

So once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re  going to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot at so you have time to  research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. We’ve put all the links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
