as you have a Minnesota driver's license

or state ID or the last four digits of

your social security number if you don't

have any of those things or you'd rather

just fill out a paper form and mail it

register the deadline is October 10th

still register at your polling location

on Election Day you just need to bring

some form of photo ID in a proof of

residence like a utility bill bank

statement or a lease with your name and

address on it if you have a Minnesota

driver's license or a tribal ID and

addresses current those count for both

forms once you're registered there are a

few ways you can vote if you want to

vote from the comfort of your own home
