Minnesotans traditionally vote in large numbers during midterm elections. Will the Tuesday, Nov. 4, elections once again place Minnesota among national leaders in turnout? If past history is repeated, the state will again be a leader, much as it was four years ago when the state led the nation in voter turnout with nearly 56 percent of registered voters casting ballots. That’s good, but far below the 71 percent of registered voters who turned out for the 2012 presidential election.
