Nonprofits and Elections
Voting is a critical part of our democracy. On the ballot in November 2020 will be the races for President, one of Minnesota’s Senate seats, all of our eight U.S. House of Representatives seats, as well as all 201 seats in the Minnesota Legislature, Minnesota Supreme and appellate court judges, school boards, and city and county races.
As nonprofits, it is our role to advocate for better voting policies and increased access to the polls to eliminate barriers a person may face to voting. Let’s make 2020 a year where we support even more communities to get out to the polls.
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) is here to help with questions you have regarding elections, as well as support your organization in your civic engagement activities, so please reach out to us! Plus, look out for our upcoming election trainings.
