Today is election day and we all know what that means. It’s time to vote! And we have a guide to check everything you need in this crazy year.

Minnesota is one of the easiest states to vote in as they want to make sure everyone can vote.

What if I already mailed in/dropped off an absentee/mail in ballot?

Perfect! You’ve done your part in the election. You can check the status of the ballot online to make sure it’s been accepted and counted already as well.

I’m not sure if I’m registered to vote, now what?

If you aren’t sure if you’re registered you can check before you head to the polls. The State of Minnesota has a Voter Registration Status tool you can use.

So I’m not registered, does that mean I can’t vote?

Good question but it’s actually to the contrary! Minnesota is one of many states that allow you to register on election day. Here is a link to all the rules and different scenarios to registering to vote on election day. You’ll also want to make sure you bring proper documentation (which depends on the scenario) and you can find the list of documents approved to register with, online at the state’s website.

Where do I vote?

That all depends on what your voting precinct is. You can also check the location through a handy tool. In addition most voting locations will be open from 7 AM to 8 PM. Though an exception exists for towns with less than 500 people, those locations can open as late as 10 AM.
