Special election Tuesday in Greene-Mavity Hennepin County Commissioner race

Voters in Hennepin County Board’s District 3 will choose between Marion Greene and Anne Mavity in the race to replace Gail Dorfman.

Voters in Hennepin County’s District 3 will go to the polls today to elect a county commissioner to replace Gail Dorfman. Anne Mavity, a St. Louis Park city council member, is running against Marion Greene, of Minneapolis, a former state legislator.

The district includes St. Louis Park and southwest and downtown Minneapolis. Polls are open until 8 p.m. The Secretary of State’s Polling Place Finder can help district residents determine where to vote.

Greene and Mavity were the two winners of a low-turnout primary election last month, that narrowed the field from six. Dorfman resigned from the seven-member board in February to take a job as Director of St. Stephens Human Services
