Do You Know Who is Running for State Legislature in Your District?

| Leave a comment

The percentage of open seats up for grabs in next year's Minnesota Legislature has hit 25 percent. As of now, 47 state legislators have retired or decided to run for other offices since the new redistricting map was released in February. That means at least one-fourth of the 201 seats in the legislature will change hands this fall, marking the largest turnover since the last redistricting year in 2002.

To track who is running where, MinnPost has compiled an interactive map of every candidate who filed to run in the upcoming election. Click on a district to see the candidates, or search with your address in the sidebar on the site.
