If you or someone you know has a felony conviction and has completed probation or supervision, you can likely be a voter.
People with felony convictions are eligible to be voters in Minnesota when they complete their sentence and finish their probation or supervision.
Register to vote. Eligible voters can register online or by mail before Election Day, or register in person at their polling place on Election Day with an approved form of ID and proof of residence.
Make a voting plan. There are several ways to exercise your power this year.
Vote absentee by mail
Return your absentee ballot in person
Vote early in person
Vote in person on Election Day
Request an absentee ballot. Request a ballot by applying online or by submitting a completed PDF form by mail, fax or email to your county election office.
When you receive your ballot, return it right away either by mail or in person. Absentee ballots returned via mail must be postmarked by Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 3 and received by the elections office by Nov. 10. Absentee ballots returned in person must be dropped off by Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m.
Voting In Person. Voters who choose to cast their ballot in person are urged to vote early at their local election office beginning on Sept. 18.
