Duane Jackson, vice chairman of the Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe, lost his bid for another term representing the Mission District in Tuesday’s primary election, and two tribal members who have clashed with Chairman Roger Yankton Sr. will face off next month in the Fort Totten District.
Minnesota voters sat out Tuesday’s midsummer election in near-record numbers, producing the state’s second-worst primary turnout in 62 years. Despite several competitive congressional and legislative primaries, only about 9 percent of eligible voters cast ballots.
Only 9 percent of eligible voters participated in Minnesota's primary.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie reported the figure Wednesday. He had predicted in the lead-up to Tuesday's primary that it was likely to draw fewer than 15 percent of eligible voters.
Polk County District 5 Commissioner Don Diedrich and challenger Randy Gust will advance to the general election ballot from Tuesday’s primary.
With all but absentee ballots compiled, Gust had 209 votes and Diedrich had 206, comfortably ahead of the third candidate, Ragnar Bergendahl.
Minnesota's election officer says everything is going smoothly in the state's primary election so far. A couple hours after polls opened Tuesday morning, Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says, "everything seems to be in order and all systems are go."
Polling places were fairly quiet as Minnesota voters got off to a slow start in a rare August primary Tuesday, but two competitive races among congressional challengers were generating interest in the northeastern and southern parts of the state.
Candidates are trying to encourage supporters to vote in what's shaping up as a low-turnout Minnesota primary election. Three Democrats are vying to challenge first-term GOP congressman Chip Cravaack in northeastern Minnesota's 8th District.
Republican Kevin Cramer’s decision to skip the state party convention in order to run in the primary election is a surprise. But it’s no mystery.
The move greatly increases Cramer’s chances of winning, and so it makes political sense.
