Black Votes Matter MN has issued a call-to-action for the Black community to vote on Friday, November 2, Sunday, November 4, and on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6. Voters are encouraged to descend on the polls at select early voting locations around the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
In partnership with the Council of Minnesotans of African Heritage (CMAH), ACLU Minneapolis and NAACP Minneapolis, the coalition is hoping to increase voter turnout in the African American community, where voting has been historically low.
The call-to-action begins Friday, November 2, with action sites at the Minneapolis Urban League in North Minneapolis and the Martin Luther King Jr. Center in St. Paul. Representatives from each organization will be present taking pictures, shaking hands and answering any questions. Light refreshments will be provided.
