Election Day Is November 7: What’s on My Ballot?

submitted by farrisr@augsburg.edu

Election Day is Tuesday, November 7. There are no classes at Augsburg on Election Day and it’s a holiday for faculty and staff in order to make it easier for our community to vote, volunteer, and take part in the democratic process. 

Not sure what’s on the ballot next week? Minnesota voters can view a sample ballot ahead of time on the Secretary of State’s website: https://www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/whats-on-my-ballot/

For Minneapolis voters, Pillsbury United Communities put together a helpful guide to learn what’s on the ballot this year, the powers and duties of City Council, and tips for researching candidates: https://www.vote612.org/

Augsburg also has a new website with information about who can vote, how to register to vote (which you can do on Election Day at your polling place), and ways to vote in Minnesota and other states.
