Current News

Student Voting

Students 18 years of age or older have a choice about where to register to vote.

School address:

  • Students attending college in Minnesota may register at their school address. You must plan to return after temporary absences, like summer break, but do not have to plan to reside at that address permanently.

Permanent address:

  • Students may choose to register or remain registered at a permanent address in Minnesota or outside the state. In this case, students may need to vote by absentee ballot.

You may only be registered and vote in one location.

Annual Essay Contest

"Mayor for a Day"

What if kids were in charge of your city? The League of Minnesota Cities is asking 4th, 5th, and 6th graders what they would do as “Mayor for a Day” in our annual essay contest—specifically, how they would make it easier for residents to get from place to place (entries must be handwritten and postmarked no later than October 17).

Three winners will be chosen, awarded $100 each, and winning essays will be published in Minnesota Cities magazine.  Please help us spread the word!  Access the entry form at www.lmc.org/mayorforaday, and direct any questions to Don Reeder at dreeder@lmc.org.
