Special Elections Send Minneapolis Voters To Polls

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis voters are culling the fields for two legislative seats that will be formally filled in January special elections.

Primaries are being held for two seats — one for the state Senate and another for the House. Both were prompted by resignations by the incumbents in heavily Democratic districts.

Six Democrats are vying for the party nod in a Senate district that encompasses the University of Minnesota and surrounding neighborhoods. The winner advances to face the lone Republican in the race.

Four Democrats are running for the House seat in south-central Minneapolis.
