MinnPost’s reporting in 2022: it’s much bigger than winners and losers

We think this work is critical to the strength of Minnesota and our democracy.

The 2022 election cycle has already started. Next November, the Minnesota ballot will be full of key races: the governor’s office, the entire state legislature, all state constitutional officers and all U.S. House seats.

Donate today!MinnPost is committed to going beyond horse race election coverage, bringing you deep into the dynamics shaping these races and, most importantly, looking at the far-reaching consequences of their results.

To us, politics isn’t a sport, and it shouldn’t be covered that way. This is much bigger than winners and losers. Policy debates and legislation impact people in very real ways. Our job is to explain the contours of those debates and equip you to be part of the process.

We think this work is critical to the strength of Minnesota and our democracy. That’s why we make our reporting available to all readers free of charge — no paywall!

Our nonprofit newsroom can do this work thanks to support from readers like you at all levels. Will you be a vital part of our work in the big year ahead with a tax-deductible donation before Dec. 31?


Truly, any amount will make a difference and will help us deliver unparalleled coverage of next year’s elections and other important stories on civic and cultural life in Minnesota. Are you with us?
