In Minnesota, the election year begins early. Minnesota’s major party caucuses were moved to February’s Super Tuesday in 2008. The anticipated date of the 2014 major party caucuses is Feb. 4, 2014.
The state and local election centers are already busy preparing election guides and other materials for the upcoming elections. The 2014 elections are also expected to draw high voter participation.
Minnesota’s state primary election, August 12, 2014 will narrow the field of candidates. In the primary election on the partisan portion of the ballot, voters for state and local offices may not cross party lines.
The state general election ballot for November 4, 2014 will include candidates for governor and state constitutional officers, federal and state senators and representatives, judicial officers, county offices, and local township, city and school district candidates.
