Automatic Voter Registration System Certified

SAINT PAUL — On Monday, Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon certified that the state’s new Automatic Voter Registration system is ready for use.

With Automatic Voter Registration, eligible Minnesotans who are applying for or renewing a state-issued ID will be registered to vote without needing to affirmatively “opt in.”

The system includes an intensive review process by state and local government officials to verify registrants’ identity and residence and confirm their eligibility to vote.
