National Voter Registration Day is TODAY!

Across Minnesota and Iowa, there are canvassers out registering new voters, part of national Voter Registration Day.

As noted by KTTC, which covers Winona and Rochester across the southern part of the state, and northern Iowa, new voters can register on the old-fashioned paper registration forms ORin Minnesota, via the ONLINE system.

WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) — As National Voter Registration Day gets underway, the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Voter Outreach program is holding several voter registration and information events.

Most of the events are in St. Paul and Minneapolis. In Winona, more than 50 WSU students and community members will be on campus and around the city to get people registered to vote.

In Minnesota, eligible voters can register online at, or use a paper application.

The success and continuation of the Online Voting Registration system owes it’s initiation to current Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie, and after a court challenge, the continuation credit goes (at least in part) to the DFL Secretary of State candidate to replace Ritchie, Steve Simon who drafted the legislation that contined MN Online Voting.
