r A valid Minnesota driver's license, a learner's permit, a Minnesota identification card or an authorized and signed tribal identification card showing your address in the precinct.

r Or the oath of a registered voter in the precinct who can vouch for your residence.

r Or a bill for electric, natural gas, water, sewer, solid waste, telephone or television/Internet service with a due date within 30 days of Election Day. The bill must contain your name and current address and must be presented with either a state driver's license or ID card, a U.S. passport, a signed tribal ID, a U.S. Military card or an ID card of a post-secondary school in Minnesota.

r Students who live in student housing and are correctly listed on a housing list issued to election judges for the precinct can present a student ID card.
