100 years ago women won the right to vote

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote.

Let’s honor the women who fought so that we can vote by voting. If you are a Minnesotan and have not voted in the August Primary you can do so now. Go to the Minnesota Secretary of State web site for details.

You should have a plan for the 2020 presidential election in November. That plan could be voting by absentee ballot or by voting early an in-person starting on September 18th or by voting in person. 

Planning ahead means ordering your absentee ballot for the November general election today. When you get your ballot fill it out and send it back immediately. It is possible that by October the postal service will be even slower than it is now.

Voter turnout in Minnesota is usually strong. To make that happen the polls will need to be open on November 3. It takes a lot of volunteers to make that happen. Please volunteer to be an election judge.
