Election day is fast approaching, and the stakes are high at local, state and national levels. Here’s what you should expect heading into Election Day.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3, but voters can also vote early via absentee ballot at Savage City Hall from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Nov. 2.
If your voter registration is current and active, you do not need to bring identification in order to vote, according to the Minnesota Secretary of State. This means you were successfully registered at least 21 days before Election Day and you have not moved or changed names since then.
If you are not yet registered to vote, you can do so on Election Day by bringing a proof of residence. A list of eligible proofs of residences are available at www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/register-to-vote/register-on-election-day/.
