Planning on heading to the polls on Nov. 6, but not sure where to go? Shakopee has thirteen precincts, and the twelfth precinct is split into two parts. Here are some ways to find where to vote.
The city of Shakopee website contains a list of polling locations for each precinct. To find out which precinct you live in, view the map also on the city website, or type your address into the Polling Place Finder on the Minnesota Secretary of State website.
Same day registration is available for those who are not registered to vote. To do so, voters must be able to show proof of residence. The city of Shakopee provides the following list:
- A valid Minnesota driver's license or learner's permit (or receipt) showing a current address in that precinct.
- A valid Minnesota identification card (or receipt) showing a current address in that precinct.
- Prior registration in the same precinct with former name or address shown on the roster.
- A mailed notice received from the County Auditor's Office indicating an insufficient registration.
- Notice of late registration sent by County Elections.
- Tribal ID card that shows name, current address, signature and picture.
- A photo ID (MN driver's license or MN ID with former address; U.S. passport; U.S. military ID; MN student photo ID from a post secondary institution; Tribal ID with former address bearing name, signature and picture) with current bill showing voters name and current address (i.e. utility bill due within 30 days of the election; student fee statement; rent statement dated within 30 days of election day that itemizes utilities).
Scott County Elections adds that residents may also have a registered person in the same district vouch for their residency.
