This is a highlights reel from the Voting Night at SPNN event on October 11, 2018. The highlights show parts of the actual live filming of presentations by community organizations as well as the Voters Fair, where community members could visit booths and register to vote, learn how to find their ballots, and chat with Michael Wall from the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State and get their voting questions answered.
