Early voting for the Duluth City Council Primaries is underway
The Duluth Municipal Primaries are underway for the open City Council positions with early voting already starting!
Ballots can be cast right in the city hall rotunda.
Since this is a primary the city will count the votes to dwindle down the candidates to only those who will be on the ballot on November 2nd.
The city says the turnout for municipal positions is normally low, but they are hoping to see that trend reversed, due to the fact that even voting for the smallest position is still important.
Chelsea Helmer from Duluth City Hall says City Council positions are the most direct representatives to the public. Saying, “And often our local representatives are the people who are the most accessible to us. So it is critically important just as it is to vote for a president, it’s just as important to vote for your local representatives as well.”
She also suggests to check your voter registration before you come in. You can do this by going to mnvotes.org
