[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] October 2021

[#mnrising Dispatch] October 2021

A palpable change is in the air as we transition into the month of November and anticipate Election Day 2021, All Saints' Day, El Día de Los Muertos, Veterans Day, and the conclusion of Daylight Saving Time over the coming weeks. These dates of remembrance urge us to reflect and honor the past even as time changes and the chance to elect new decision-makers call us to move forward toward the future we want to create. Early voting concludes November 1 and Election Day is Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Learn more at the Secretary of State's website about casting your ballot this week for municipal and school board elections across the state of Minnesota. #GOTV
