8200.9115 FORM OF POLLING PLACE ROSTERS.

Subpart 1.

General form of roster.

The polling place rosters must contain the following items from the statewide registration system: voter's name, voter's address, voter's date of birth, voter's school district number, and a line on which the voter's signature can be written. When a voter's registration has been challenged pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 201.121, subdivision 2, an indicator noting the voter's challenged status must be printed on the line or included in the field provided for the voter's signature. A similar indicator must be printed on the line or included in the field provided for the voter's signature to note a voter's guardianship or felony status, if any.

The following certification must be included at the top of each page of the polling place roster: "I swear or affirm that I am at least 18 years of age and a citizen of the United States; that I reside at the address shown and have resided in Minnesota for 20 days immediately preceding this election; that I am not under guardianship of the person in which the court order revokes my right to vote, have not been found by a court to be legally incompetent to vote, and that I have the right to vote because, if convicted of a felony, my felony sentence has expired (been completed) or I have been discharged from my sentence; and that I am registered and will be voting only in this precinct. I understand that giving false information is a felony punishable by not more than five years imprisonment and a fine of not more than $10,000, or both."

One or more pages in a printed polling place roster must be provided for use by voters who register to vote in the polling place on election day. An election day registrant shall fill in the registrant's name, address, and date of birth and shall sign the roster on the line provided.

The polling place roster must also contain the name of the precinct and, for paper rosters, must include a page number. In addition, each line provided for a voter's signature must be consecutively numbered on each page.

The roster may also include additional material as permitted under Minnesota Statutes, section 201.221, subdivision 3.

Subp. 2.

[Repealed, 25 SR 616]

Subp. 3.

Production of rosters.

The Secretary of State shall identify and develop methods of producing polling place rosters. The Secretary of State shall provide polling place rosters for each election in the state. The rosters provided by the secretary of state must be forwarded to the county auditors in an electronic format specified by the secretary of state. Alternatively, the list provided to the county auditors may be provided in another medium, if a written agreement specifying the medium is signed by the secretary of state and the county auditor at least 90 days before the November general election. A written agreement is effective for all elections until rescinded by either party.
