Congressional representatives need to be inhabitants of the state they represent on election day (see Article I, Section 2, Paragraph 2 of the US Constitution).
See the Filing for Office page for more information on candidate filing.
All seats in the MN House and Senate will be up for election in 2012, under the new district boundaries. Candidates for the MN House or Senate will need to file for office based on their residence under the new boundaries. For incumbents, this may or may not be the same district that they have represented in the past. Note: Legislative candidates must reside in their district six months before November 6, 2012 (that is, starting May 5, 2012).
Voter information lists will continue to be available throughout this process, with old precinct and district information for each voter. If you would like post-redistricting precinct and district information on your voter list, please specify that on your order and we will fulfill it when that information is available. We anticipate that data will be fully updated in mid-May.
For more information on voter information lists, including an order form, see the Voter Information Requests page.
