Tomorrow (Tuesday) is Primary Election day in Minnesota. Most polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Matt Lindstrom is a political science professor at the College of St. Benedict and St. John's University. He says the primary election is about a month early this year.
In the primary election: Sauk Rapids voters narrowed the field of candidates vying for city council seats from five down to four. And in Benton County, the field of candidates competing for County Commissioner in District 5 was cut from three down to two.
Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says he's expecting less than 15 percent of eligible voters to participate in the state's primary. Two races to pick primary challengers to members of Congress are considered the most competitive Tuesday.
