2024 Primary dates

What is a primary election?

A primary election determines which candidates will be on the ballot in the November general election.

For example, five candidates from one political party might run for governor. Only one candidate can be on the ballot in November. The winner of the August primary election will represent their party on the November election ballot.

There may be two kinds of offices on your primary ballot: partisan offices and nonpartisan offices.

Partisan offices

Partisan offices will list a political party next to a candidate’s name on the ballot. All state and federal offices—such as U.S. representative or Minnesota senator—are partisan offices.

Partisan candidates will be listed in multiple columns on the primary ballot. Each column will list the candidates for one major party.

You can only vote for candidates from one political party. If you vote for candidates from more than one political party, your votes will not count. You decide when you vote which one of the parties you will vote for—Minnesota does not have political party registration.

Nonpartisan offices

Nonpartisan offices will not list a political party next to a candidate’s name on the ballot. For example, county, city, township and school board offices are nonpartisan.

Nonpartisan offices will be listed on the back side of the primary ballot. You can vote for any candidate. The candidates who get the most votes will be on the November general election ballot.

Update on Broadband Internet in Normanna Township:

On Tuesday, April 9, 2024 the St. Louis County Commissioners unanimously approved awarding Normanna Township $400,000 for Broadband Internet.  The award is contingent on Mediacom being awarded a Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) grant. Mediacom and Normanna Township are asking for your support.  Please either send an email or letter to Mediacom supporting their efforts to bring high speed broadband to Normanna as soon as you can. Your action will definitely make a difference in seeking funds from DEED through Mediacom’s application. It is helpful if you can include why you feel high speed internet is important to you.  For example, this could be for work, school, medical appointments or other reasons.  You can send your correspondence to Christopher Lord from Mediacom at the following:

1613 Nantahala Beach Road
Gulf Breeze, Florida 32563
or email to:

It may be that you are not interested in seeking fiber to the home through this process, we still encourage to send a support letter for the Normanna residents who are interested and need it. Over the past several years when a property owner has fiber to the home/broadband internet it has increased the property value when homes are being sold.

All correspondence will be used in the grant process through St. Louis County and DEED.  Now that the St. Louis Commissioners have approved their portion of the process our chances are higher for the DEED grant to be approved. It is very important that Mediacom receive support letters/emails to include with their DEED application.  Please show your support by sending in letters or emails as soon as possible.  Thank you.

Town Board: Chair Dan Johnson; Supervisor Dennis Gunsolus; Supervisor Tammy Courrege; Clerk/Treasurer Ellen Hanson.
