Minnesota Legal Marijuana Now Party News
NUMBER 5 OCTOBER-DECEMBER 2016
Voting Has Begun!
By Dan Vacek
Minnesota Election '16 voting began on September 23. You can vote in-person Monday through Friday, during business hours, at your county Elections Office and some city halls. If you're not yet registered to vote, you can register in-person or online, until October 18.
Go to the Minnesota Secretary of State's voter-information portal at mnvotes.org to find your polling place. Or register to vote and request an absentee ballot be sent to you by mail.
You're eligible to vote if you're a US citizen who will be at least 18 years old by November 8, and you're not currently on felony probation or parole. Bring identification showing your correct address, or someone who is a registered voter, to identify you.
On the ballot everywhere across Iowa and Minnesota, you'll have the opportunity to cast a vote for Legal Marijuana Now candidates. In some parts of the Twin Cities you'll be able to vote for as many as three Legal Marijuana Now Party candidates, in various races, on Election Day!
(September 5, 2016) - 4:20pm, Labor Day at the Minnesota State Fair LMN Party booth.
Election '16: The Year for Cannabis!
Across the United States, voters will decide whether to legalize marijuana either for personal use or for medicine. And Americans will vote to elect candidates who will stand up for them.
In less than half the states, citizens can petition to put the law up for a vote. Of these states, this year Florida (Amendment 2), Arkansas (Issues 6 & 7), and North Dakota (Measure 5) will vote for medical cannabis. And Montana (Initiative182) will vote to restore the state's medical marijuana law.
Voters in Arizona (Proposition 205), California (Proposition 64), Maine (Question 1), Massachusetts (Question 4), and Nevada (Question 2) will decide whether to legalize personal use of cannabis, like Colorado did in 2012.
In more than half the states, only the legislature, not the people, can put the law up for a vote. Iowa and Minnesota are two such non-initiative states. So we put candidates onto the ballot with the words "Legal Marijuana Now" next to their names to protest, because every vote counts!
Note: In Minnesota, you can register and vote on Election Day.
