Election

Valentine’s Day marks end of 2016 election in Minnesota

A special election in Minnesota House District 32B will be held on Valentine’s Day pitting DFLer Laurie Warner against Republican Anne Neu.

Ryan Howard of the Forest Lake Times:

Though the Legislature has already been in session for a few weeks, the district hasn’t had anyone to send. The election results for the district race were preemptively nullified in September 2016, when the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that the district’s former representative, Bob Barrett, did not actually live in the district, thus rendering his then-current re-election bid ineligible. Given the proximity to the election and the inability for ballots to be updated, state law required that the votes in the race between Republican Barrett and his Democratic challenger Laurie Warner be nullified.
