ALBERT LEA, Minn. (FOX 47) -- With Election Day 2012 only 42 days away, the push for voter registration is full-steam ahead. But even if you have registered already, there are instances where you will be required to re-register.
As an example, you move to Rochester in July and register to vote in Olmsted County, but now you have to move to Albert Lea tomorrow.
Do you need to register to vote again?
The answer is yes. At any point if you register at one address and end up moving to another, whether you are moving to Minnesota, moving from one city to another in the state or even if it is in the same town, you have to re-register so you are properly accounted for at your new place of residence.
Those applications can be found online and at your county auditor's office.
While this may seem tedious, the process to get registered again is a simple one and can happen on Election Day.
"What you will need for Election Day registration is either your driver's license or Minnesota ID changed so you have your current address, or if you have a utility bill with your name on it and your current address," said Dennis Distad, Freeborn County Auditor-Treasurer.
Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, so the push is on to get Minnesota residents registered in the proper locations so people are not turned away on Election Day.
Answers to your voter registration questions can be found at the Secretary of State's website.
