The website is mnvotes.org and aside from finding your location, you can also check your registration and absentee vote there, as well as see your voting rights and learn a little bit more about voting.
Polls today will be open until 8:00 p.m. and people in the line by 8:00 p.m. will still be allowed in to cast their vote.
