Your need-to-know guide for midterm elections in Minnesota

'Vote Here' sign at polling station

You've done your research and know exactly who you want to vote for in the November election — but do you know if you're registered to vote? Do you know where your polling place is?

To successfully cast your ballot, it's as important to know about the candidates as it is to understand the basics of how to vote. Every state runs its elections differently, and Minnesota has its own quirks.

MPR News helps you find out how to make sure you're eligible and prepared to cast your ballot on (or before) Election Day in this handy need-to-know guide.
