Voter participation letters

City elections staff has heard from some concerned St. Louis Park voters who have received a letter from the Voter Participation Center, stating the recipient does not appear to be registered to vote. The letter goes on to encourage voter registration and provides www.mnvotes.org as a way to check registration status or register online.

First, we want voters to know that these letters are not illegal; records of registered voters are publicly available. Second, city staff supports efforts to ensure voters are registered and to check their voter registration status prior to voting. If you have questions about your voter registration status or about elections in general call the city elections hotline at 952.924.2503.
