Did you know that as a Minnesota resident you no longer have to wait until Election Day to vote?

Beginning September 23, you can either vote in person or request that a ballot be sent right to your door

While the Presidential race draws most of the attention and focus, it clear that who we elect at the local level has a huge impact on reproductive health and rights. Since 2010, over 300 abortion restrictions have been passed in the United States - all at the state level.

Thankfully, no anti-women’s health bills have become law in Minnesota, but we need your help to keep it that way. Last legislative session we saw the House of Representatives unleash an unprecedented attack on reproductive health, including approval of a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. In order to keep these attacks from getting any more momentum in Minnesota, we need to ensure we elect a pro-reproductive health majority to both the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives.

Not sure who to vote for? Check out the Voter Guide for a list of Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed candidates.

Endorsed candidates support:

  • Comprehensive sex education
  • Access to contraception and family planning
  • Keeping health care decisions, including decisions about birth control, in the hands of women and not their employers
  • A woman’s constitutionally protected right to obtain a safe, legal, and accessible abortion

This guide will lead you to Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed candidates, and also includes endorsements from our partner organizations, so you can also see where the candidates stand on many other issues that Minnesotans care about.
