The primary election is just around the corner, and the deadline is closing in for voters to pre-register.
 The deadline to pre-register online on the Minnesota Secretary of State website is midnight tonight for the August 14 primary election.
Paper applications can also be submitted at the courthouse until 5 p.m. today.
Voters that miss today's deadline can also register at the polling place the day of the election.
Most commonly, just a photo ID and proof of address is needed.
