[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] July 2022


[#mnrising Dispatch] July 2022

Every 10 years, states redraw the boundaries of their congressional districts to ensure equal elected representation based on new population counts from the census. Minnesotans will soon be able to use their voices and votes with the newly redrawn districts. This year, the Minnesota Primary Election takes place Tuesday, August 9. You can check your registration status to vote early or register same day at the polls on Election Day. Learn more about voting in the upcoming elections on the Minnesota Secretary of State's website and help keep Minnesota's voter turnout highest in the nation!
