Voter Registration in Minnesota


Before you can vote, you must register.  In Minnesota, you may pre-register at least 21 days before election day, or on election day at your polling place. Your registration remains current until you move, change your name, or do not vote for four consecutive years.  You may register or update your registration online or by completing a paper voter registration application.

Check your registration status or register online by visiting the Minnesota Secretary of State web link Am I Registered?

Paper forms can be returned to Cass County Elections, PO Box 3000, Walker MN 56484, or in-person to the Auditor-Treasurer's Office at the Cass County Courthouse, 303 Minnesota Avenue West, Walker Minnesota.
