We hosted a virtual candidate forum for Dakota County Board of Commissioners District 7 on September 23. Voting began September 18 and will continue through the November 3 general election. You can watch replays of the forum on Spectrum channel 180 or Frontier's Vantage channel 191 or 192, or view the video below. Thank you to our moderator, Mary Rice, the candidates, and the Apple Valley, Farmington, Rosemount Cable Commission for making this candidate forum possible!

Dakota County is still in need of election judges for the November 3, 2020 general election. If you are able to serve as an election judge, you can sign up here. Election judges are paid and if you are employed, your employer generally is required to allow you to serve as an election judge and pay you the difference between your normal wage and what you earn as an election judge (assuming your normal wage is higher). Serving as an election judge is a great way to support democracy in action. You can find more information here (Dakota County) and here (Secretary of State's office).

The cities of Inver Grove Heights and Savage are also in need of election judges. You can email Inver Grove Heights City Clerk Rebecca Kiernan at rkiernan@invergroveheights.org or Savage City Clerk Lisa Shadick at lshadick@ci.savage.mn.us if you are able to help.
