Early voting is now open!

As of today, early voting for the November general election is open! Thanks to Steve Simon and the DFL majority’s efforts to make all voices heard in Minnesota, you no longer need to give a reason to vote early. Information on absentee voting, including an application to receive an absentee ballot, can be found at the Secretary of State’s website. If you think there’s any chance you’ll have difficulty voting on election day, we encourage you to vote early so that you can have a say in who will govern Minnesota for the next 4 years.

Help lead the DFL!

The DFL is looking for individuals to help lead and energize our state party organization as members of the State Central; Party Affairs and Coordinated Campaign; Platform, Issues and Legislative Affairs; Constitution, Bylaws and Rules; and Budget committees.

Applications must be submitted by July 25. For questions about the application process email nominations@dfl.org or go to http://www.dfl.org/nominations.

Early voting for the primary is open

Have you voted in the August 12 Primary yet? What do you mean it’s only June? Thanks to the DFL majority, you can now request an absentee ballot and vote early! No excuse early voting for the primary opened on June 27, and you can still request an absentee ballot on the Secretary of State’s website. You don’t need to give any reason for absentee voting, you can do it just because it’s more convenient for you. You can get more information on early voting on the DFL’s website.

If you get done casting your primary ballot, and you decide you want to vote early again, you’re in luck! Mark September 19 on your calendar, that’s when early voting for the general election starts.
