Checking on Your Voter Status

What’s On My Ballot?

Key Elections to Look Out For

County Attorney

In many Twin Cities and suburban counties, the County Attorney is up for election! 

MN8’s Take on Why This Race Matters

The decisions of county attorneys, especially in counties with many immigrant and refugee communities, can often lead to deportation for some immigrants and refugees. They can also choose whether or not to re-open past cases that are triggering deportation!

MN8’s Take on Why This Race Matters

The sheriff’s control over the county jail means that they can choose whether or not to share information with ICE about community members who are detained. They can also choose whether or not to allow ICE officers into the jail to interview community members. Providing ICE with information as well as allowing ICE officers in the jail leads to a strong possibility of someone being put in immigration proceedings and deported.

Secretary of State

MN8’s Take on Why This Race Matters

The Secretary of State’s office’s main responsibilities is overseeing statewide voter registration and elections and controlling the statewide voter registration system. Their position also oversees language access and voting restoration for individuals completing prison sentences


Attorney General

MN8’s Take on Why This Race Matters

As the chief legal officer of the state, the Attorney General provides legal support and advice to our state agencies, commissions, and boards on how to implement statewide policies and procedures. The Attorney General is also one of three individuals who can grant a pardon to Minnesotans. A pardon for past criminal convictions can remove a deportation order for immigrants and refugees.
