Nov. 3 isn’t the day the election begins; it’s when the election is over. Visit mnvotes.org to get information on how to vote early, where your polling place is to vote on Election Day, and other important information.
To help out between now and Election Day, connect with the campaigns of any of Labor’s endorsed candidates (see column at right), or call the NEALC’s Mark Privratsky to get plugged into a phone bank, 218-209-7181.
Stay safe! If you plan to vote in person, remember there is still a mask mandate inside public buildings, and that social distancing is still recommended when in large groups of people. If possible, vote in person during times where demand is expected to be slower, such as midmorning or midafternoon. If you are in line when the polls close at 8 p.m., state law says you can still vote.
