Believe it or not, there is another election right around the corner. Tomorrow, November 7, voters across Minnesota will head to the polls to vote on ballot measures, school board, city council and mayoral seats.
Off-year elections are often overlooked because "flashy" positions like President or U.S. Congressional seats aren’t on the ballot, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important or consequential. Mayors, city council, and school board members all make important decisions on behalf of the communities they serve. They are the elected officials that most impact the day-to-day lives of residents in their respective communities.
It is important to get out to vote. All voices count and need to be heard!
