Urgent Absentee Voting Announcement!
As if we weren’t motivated enough to vote yet, a federal appeals court just changed Minnesota’s absentee ballot rules right before Election Day.
ALL ABSENTEE BALLOTS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 3:00 PM TUESDAY NOVEMBER 3RD OR THEY MAY BE THROWN OUT!
Minneapolis, bring your absentee ballot to one of 13 drop off locations.
It’s time to get out the vote!
Here’s what you can do to help here in
Senate District 60:
Sign Up for “This Block Votes at …” Signs
8 voting locations changed in our parts of Northeast, Southeast, Cedar Riverside, and Seward. Help inform your neighbors by getting a sign to post on November 3rd (signs available in Oromo, Somali, Spanish, and English). Sign up here.
Drop Literature to Remind Folks to Vote for our DFL Candidates
We have targeted lists of people who haven’t voted yet so you can efficiently remind our neighbors.
Sign up here.
Vouchers for Unhoused Neighbors
While most of the sanctuaries have been dismantled, some unhoused residents remain and some are expected to return to shelters in our neighborhood.
We need people who can vouch for these residents on election day.
Email us and we will give you the details. We especially need volunteers in Logan Park (1-8), Beltrami (3-10), and both Riveside and Annie Young parks (2-9). THIS LIST WILL CHANGE DUE TO RESIDENT MOVEMENT.
Vans and Buses to the Polls
We are working with our local leaders (Rep. Noor, Rep. Jordan, Sen. Dziedzic) and the Biden | Harris campaign to provide transportation to the polls in a safe manner. We provide transportation primarily from public housing to polling locations.
We continue to raise funds to rent more buses to make this even safer.
Biden | Harris Items Available!
Get a sign (or 2!), buttons, stickers, or face masks by emailing us. We’ll let you know where to pick up your items in Senate District 60.
Absentee Voting By Mail
Abesentee voting will begn on September 18th, 2020. You can request an absentee ballot through the Secretary of State’s Office Here.

Your ballot must be postmarked by Election Day (November 3rd, 2020), and received by county within 7 days after the Election (November 10th).
