Part 1: Voting Basics
Learn how to find out who will be on your ballot, and the different voting options available to you like absentee voting, voting early in-person, and voting on election day.
2020 is a big election year. The U.S. President, House of Representatives, and some Senators are up for re-election. So are all Minnesota State Senators and Representatives. Whomever is elected on November 3 will make key decisions as our communities begin to recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
Moreover, elected officials have the power to create change through policy. It was elected leaders who upheld discriminatory housing policies for decades, both in Minnesota and nationally. You can learn more about this history and how today’s elected leaders can challenge these disparities by reading our Race & Housing series: tchabitat.org/race.
Simply put, elections matter, this election matters, and your voice matters.
