Election Resources

Election Day in Minnesota is Tuesday, November 7th


“Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." - Pope Francis


Catholics are committed to following Jesus Christ and to being “salt for the earth, light for the nations.” The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that it is every person’s responsibility to participate in promoting the common good and, as far as possible, we should all take an active part in public life. This includes voting! Tomorrow will be an important election day across Minnesota as many school boards, city councils, and other municipal positions will be on the ballot.

The Secretary of State’s website provides helpful election resources to get you ready for election day. Visit the links below to find your polling location, view your sample ballot, learn about same-day registration, and much more!


Parish Guidelines for Political Activity

As Catholics, we must never be afraid of bringing our faith into the public square. However, because the Church is not a political entity, we must make sure that our individual advocacy efforts are kept distinct from the Church’s teaching voice. This election resource, updated in June 2022, provides guidelines for parish and church organization political activity, clearly laying out which activities are prohibited and which are permissible.
