If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
The voter pre-registration deadline for Minnesota is Oct. 16.
Here’s information on how you can register in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
- According to the City of Golden Valley's website, you can register by mail or in person by filling out a Voter Registration Card.
- Cards are available at Golden Valley City Hall and the Golden Valley Library.
- You can also register directly with the county at the Hennepin County Government Center.
- If you don't know if you're registered to vote, visit the Minnesota Secretary of State's website.
