Tuesday is voter registration deadline

Published 6:52 am Monday, October 15, 2012

The deadline to pre-register to vote in the upcoming general election is Tuesday. Mower County Auditor Doug Groh said residents’ best access to an application is at www.co.mower.mn.us/auditor-treasurer-election.htm. Once printed and filled out, applications may be faxed to Groh at 507-434-2646, or scanned then emailed to dougg@co.mower.mn.us.

Voters who miss the deadline can still vote, but Secretary of State Mark Ritchie recommends pre-registration as a way to save time on Election Day. Voters must re-register if they have not voted in the last four years, have moved or have changed their names.

Those unable to access the Internet can go to the Mower County Auditor’s office, 201 First St. NE in Austin, to fill out a form.
