Welcome to Minnesota on Ballotpedia!

Located in the Midwestern United States, Minnesota is known for a politically active citizenry and a history of populism. The state of Minnesota has a consistently high voter turnout, due in part to its liberal voter registration laws. For example, in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, 77.9% of eligible Minnesotans voted — the highest percentage of any U.S. state — versus the national average of 61.2%. The 32nd state admitted to the Union, Minnesota achieved statehood in 1858 and is known as the "Land of 10,000 Lakes."

Minnesota has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of eight members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 134 members of the Minnesota House of Representatives and 67 members of the Minnesota State Senate.
