Believe it or not, 2021 is an election year in Minneapolis — a very
important election year. The mayor and every city council seat will be
on the ballot in addition to members of the Park Board and the
Board of Estimate and Taxation. There may also be proposed
amendments to the City Charter that could affect policing and the
structure of city government.
Do you need to register to vote? Maybe.
You are eligible to vote in Minneapolis if you are a U.S. citizen, at least
18 years of age on election day, a resident of Minneapolis for at least
20 days and have finished all parts of any felony sentence.
You need to register if you have 1) moved or changed your name
since the last election, or 2) not voted in the past four years. You can
register to vote when you renew your Minnesota Driver’s License or
State ID and you do NOT have to declare party affiliation.
You can CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION STATUS here:
If you are not currently registered to vote, but you qualify, you can
register online or download a paper form which is available in 12
languages. If you or someone you know has a question or needs
assistance, call the City of Minneapolis Help Line: 311.
Remember: your VOTE is your VOICE and every eligible voter has the
right to be heard. Democracy depends on it. Learn more at
