With Minneapolis’ record turnout for the August primary, we need to keep that momentum moving forward!
It’s simple: a volunteer will place the sign in your yard in September, and then within a week after the election, a volunteer will retrieve it for re-use in 2020.
P.S. If by chance you still happen to have your sign from 2017 and it still says ‘Nov 7’, please email email@example.com so we can get you a ‘6’ decal to change the date!
KFNA has been working hard to Get Out the Vote and the results are in—we were successful!
As compared to the last municipal election in 2013:
- Turnout in precinct 8-6 went up from 40% to 51.8%;
- Turnout in precinct 8-7 went up from 43.6% to 55.4%;
- Turnout in Kingfield overall went up from 41.9% to 53.8%!
Minneapolis, as a whole, increased as well by 9 percentage points.
Thank you everyone for voting—now lets get ready for 2018 and another 12% increase in voters!
Also, another “thank you” to our amazing business community for fueling the Kingfield Polling Party. Hot coffee and tasty treats were donated by Five Watt, Butter Bakery, Royal Grounds, Curran’s, The Lowbrow, Sun Street Breads, Patisserie 46, and Bruegger’s!
