What is a primary election?

A primary election is where parties decide who to nominate as their candidate in the general election, which takes place in November.

Minnesota is an “open primary” state. This means you choose which one of the party’s primary to vote in, regardless of your own party affiliation.

Any U.S. Citizens, at least 18 years old, that have resided in Minnesota for at least 20 days before the election are eligible to vote as long as they have not been declared mentally incompetent by a court and are not currently incarcerated for a felony conviction.


How can I prepare?

As a result of North Carolina Supreme Court’s reinstatement of the state’s voter ID law in April 2023, photo ID is now in effect for North Carolina voters.

Your ID must be unexpired or expired less than one year. It can be expired for any amount of time if you are over 65 and your ID expired after your 65th birthday. 

You can cast a regular ballot if you present one of the following IDs: North Carolina driver license, North Carolina state ID card (also called a non-operators ID), US Passport or Passport Card, North Carolina voter photo ID card issued by a County Board of Elections, North Carolina student ID card approved by the NC Board of Elections (list available here), Employee ID issued by North Carolina state or local government or charter school approved by the State Board of Elections. (list available here), and out-of-state driver’s license or ID card (only for use by voters who have registered to vote in North Carolina within 90 days of an election). 

You can use the following IDs even if they do not have an issuance or expiration date: Military ID card issued by US Government, Veterans ID card issued by US Department of Veterans Affairs, and Tribal enrollment card. 

The address on your photo ID does not have to match your address on your voter registration. The name on your photo ID must be the same as or “substantially equivalent” to the name on your voter registration record. If you don’t have an acceptable ID, you can still vote by signing a form.

Spread the word

Did you know that millions of Americans can’t access the democratic process because of solvable problems in how elections are run? These problems aren’t felt equally across communities – voters of color are 6x more likely than White voters to wait longer than an hour to vote, even in the same town. Spread the word to help defeat barriers to the ballot box.
