Oakdale Voter Registration for 2012 General Election

Here's what you need to know about election day voter registration.

Before heading to the polls make sure you're registered to vote.

If you pre-registered to vote by Oct. 16 then you do not need to bring anything with you to the polls. If you aren't sure if you are registered, check out the Minnesota Secretary of State's registration search tool by clicking here.
