Election 2013: Any Requests?
There are a bunch of contested Park Board races and City Council seats. Does anyone have a specific request? Because I've been having fun writing these and there's a month left before the election. If you want me to write up a race in your neighborhood, it would be helpful if you left an address of a building in your ward, so that I can pull up an actual sample ballot and see exactly who's on it. (It doesn't have to be YOUR address. I mean, it COULD be -- I'm not planning to drive to use this information to TP your house or anything -- but so long as it's a real address in your precinct it'll work.)
If you live outside of Minneapolis or St. Paul, you can certainly make a request, but I'm less likely to fulfill it. I'd say that as a general rule, the further you are from my house, the less likely I am to fulfill your request, although there are certainly exceptions.
