MinnPost is excited to partner with CityLab to co-host Brews, Data, and the Suburbs: CityLab + MinnPost’s 2018 Midterm Happy Hour on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m. at Sisyphus Brewing (712 Ontario Ave W in Minneapolis).

MinnPost data reporter Greta Kaul and CityLab data journalist David Montgomery will talk about why the suburbs matter so much in Congress this year, and which local and state elections you should be watching.

Register for this free event through Eventbrite.

You may have heard that suburban votes will be particularly significant in the 2018 midterms. David Montgomery’s recent story for CityLab, written in collaboration with Richard Florida, explains why districts like Minnesota’s 3rd could have such an outsized impact.

With so many competitive races in Minnesota, MinnPost’s Greta Kaul’s reporting explains which ones in particular are most likely to tip the balance of power in Congress and the state House. She also wrote (and illustrated!) a guide to reading polls the smart way.

 Tickets to the #HappyHourLab are free, but advance registration is required as space is limited. As we count down to the election, come drink and talk local elections with two of the region’s preeminent data journalists. Light snacks will be provided.
