The Primaries are here! EVERYONE who is eligible to vote- can and should vote. You don’t have to be a registered Democrat or Republican- both pary’s candidates are on the ballot- BUT YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE ONE! This vote determines who is on the ballot in November. This vote matters
The polls are open and you have until 8 pm to vote. This is Minnesota’s first statewide election since 2016. I hope each and every one of you takes (or has taken) the time to vote, and has encouraged others to do so as well. Please remember, regardless of who wins today, we must all work together as a unified group to support the winners and help carry them through to victory in November.
Have you forgotten to register? You can register at the polls; you will need a valid ID or a bill/bank statement with your address on it, or someone o vouch for who you are and where you live. Here is a link to all information for same day registration
