Historic voting memorabilia on display at Hennepin County Government Center

An exhibit on voting — with a look at local and national elections from the past, and the evolution of voting —  is now on display in the Hennepin Gallery in the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis.

The Hennepin County Public Affairs department says the exhibit, “Voting: Our Voice,” will be on display until Nov. 28.

It includes campaign and voting memorabilia from the Hennepin County Elections Office, the City of Minneapolis Elections and Voter Registration, the Hennepin History Museum and private collector Paul Bengston.

Some of the material is from the 1880s, and includes voting machines, iconic images of past elections, and books on women’s suffrage, organizers say.

The Hennepin Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Hennepin County Government Center, A Level, 300 S. Sixth St., Minneapolis.
