Public Policy/2012 Election
How to Vote
On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, Americans will head to the polls to cast their vote in the presidential election. Minnesotans will also be casting their ballots on two important amendment issues: Voter I.D. and Marriage. The Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce recognizes and fully supports the democratic voting process and urges you to exercise your freedom as an American citizen during the critical 2012 election.
Here are some helpful website links that can help you learn how and where to vote.
