DULUTH, MN-- Polls are now open for the primary elections in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Minnesota voters can only vote for one major party’s candidates in the primary. According to the Secretary of State’s website, all candidates for each party will be listed in the same column on ballots.

In Wisconsin, this is also a partisan primary election. Meaning, that you may only vote within one political party on the ballot. You will also be able to vote in non-partisan contests.

In both Minnesota and Wisconsin, if you are 18 or older on election day, you can register to vote the day of the election at your polling place.

Today is also the last day you can return your absentee ballot in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Polling places are open in both Minnesota and Wisconsin from 7 a.m to 8 p.m.

In Wisconsin, you must bring a valid ID with you to vote on election day.

If you are already registered to vote, Minnesota does not require voters to present an ID at the polling place on the day of the election. If you still need to register to vote at your polling place, you will need to bring an ID.
