Are you registered to vote? With the next general election coming up on Tuesday, November 4, that’s an answer Minnesota’s Future Coalition is very interested in hearing from the state’s residents.
Minnesota's Future is a broad coalition of early childhood advocacy organizations working to ensure Minnesota children are nurtured, healthy, eager to learn and prepared to succeed in school and in life.
Elected officials make a number of decisions that impact many aspects of early childhood, so part of the coalition’s work is to educate parents, providers and others concerned for children about early education issues and how to have their opinions counted at the polls. That starts with proper voter registration.
To find out how to register to vote, where to vote and to get information on absentee voting, visit www.mnvotes.org or call 1-877-600-VOTE (8683).
Vote on November 4, 2014
Polls open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Remember to bring your I.D.
The Governor, every seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives and Constitutional Officers (Attorney General, Secretary of State and State Auditor) are up for election.
Minnesota’s Future Coalition also encourages voters to ask questions related to early education before casting a ballot. These questions include:
If elected, what will you do to…
- Support parents to be their children’s first and best teacher?
- Increase the number of infants and toddlers receiving the resources needed for a secure and healthy start?
- Increase the number of children receiving high quality early learning experiences?
- Increase the availability and affordability of professional development opportunities for early childhood professionals?
