Local Voters Head To The Polls On Election Day

The Future of the Duluth City Council and School Board Will Be Decided

DULUTH, Minn. – It’s the first Tuesday of November and it’s also Election Day.

Polling stations in Duluth were open until 8 p.m. for voters to cast ballots.

We stopped by one Duluth church where 103 people had already voted by the early afternoon.

Election judges here tells us they’ve mostly seen mothers, the elderly and young voters. They also mentioned the weather didn’t have a negative impact on voter turnout.

City Council and School Board races are both being decided in Duluth.

Duluth Mayor Emily Larson proposed a possible sales tax increase for a street improvement program, which is also on the ballot.

“Considering it’s the referendum question that will effect people in the next 25 years with the sales tax being such a long time; I’m surprised that people aren’t showing up to at least vote on that,” said Precinct 14 Election Chair Penny Minor.”

Several other Northland communities are also voted today.
