(MNN) -- The Department of Public Safety says Minnesotans can use expired driver's licenses, permits and I-D cards to register to vote in the August 11th primary.
Many people saw their license expire when the Driver and Vehicle Services offices were closed at the start of the pandemic.
Governor Walz signed an order extending card expiration dates by two months to give Minnesotans more time to renew rather than visit a D-V-S location due to COVID-19.
Those cards are still a valid proof of residency until a month after the peacetime emergency ends.
