Are you interested in serving as an election judge, or do you know someone who is? Election judges are essential to a successful Election Day. They are the officials that staff local polling places, administer election procedures, and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Serving as an election judge provides an opportunity to learn about the elections process and is a great service to our community.
Although hundreds of people are already signed up to be election judges, Minneapolis is still in need of several hundred
more judges to staff up for Election Day. Election judges open and close the polls, register and sign in voters, distribute and collect ballots, operate voting equipment, and record and certify vote totals.
To be an election judge, you must be:
- Eligible to vote in Minnesota.
- Willing to attend a two-hour training class
- Able to work either a full day (6 a.m. – 9 p.m.) or a part-time shift (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. or 2 p.m. – 9 p.m.) on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Meet at 54th St. & Zenith Ave S
(rain date: Sun., Oct. 20 at 1 p.m.)
Armatage, Fulton and Lynnhurst Neighborhood Associations have spent the summer and early fall asking “What Would You Do” along Minnehaha Creek from Zenith Ave east to Lynnhurst Recreation Center. The responses have varied and we heard from several folks that they don’t have a good understanding of what the Creek and its surrounding areas have/don’t have to offer along that stretch.
In order to provide a better understanding of the area, the three neighborhoods would like to host a Community Walk along the creek. This will give residents a chance to see and experience the current condition of the creek area and help us generate a wish list of improvements (or no improvements) that would help make the creek an even better asset to our communities.
Please join us on the 19th for a community walk with your neighbors along Minnehaha Creek! We’ll start at 54th St. & Zenith Ave S and walk east to the Lynnhurst Recreation Center. We’ll help transport people back to the starting point when we are through. Wear comfortable shoes.
Hennepin County organizes collection events throughout the year to give residents more convenient, local disposal options for their household hazardous wastes.

The Fulton Environment Committee is sponsoring a yard sign campaign aimed at keeping leaves and other yard debris out of the streets. Any debris that gets raked or blown into the streets goes straight into the stormwater sewer system. This debris then produces algae and other growth in our lakes, rivers and streams. If you would like a yard sign, please contact Mary Nolte at 612.922.1591.
