Election 2020

Below please find information for candidates who opt-in to our Virtual Candidate Forum.  There’s also information on area races and resources.  Thank you!

 

Attention Candidates – Virtual Candidate Forum:

Instead of a traditional candidate forum, the Hermantown Area Chamber of Commerce will be sharing submitted video links from candidates on our social media streams until November 2nd. If you are in a race that will serve constituents in our general service area of Hermantown, Proctor, Rice Lake, Miller Hill of the Duluth area, and surrounding townships (Midway, Canosia, etc.), you are invited to participate. Many races are happening right now – candidate submitted video links from US Senate, Congress, State Senate, County Commissioner, Mayor, City Council, and School Board will be shared. (If you are in another race and wish to be considered, please email kim@hermantownchamber.com)

Rules:

Send:

Deadline:  ASAP – as soon as we have them, we will post them during regular business hours.  Since people are early voting and mail-in voting, it is recommended to share the video with us as soon as possible.

Here’s a SAMPLE of how it will be presented on our Facebook page:

Meet the Candidates: John Doe running for House District XB serving the communities of Hermantown and Rice Lake. Find out more on his Facebook Page {LINK} “Vote 4 John”.

The views and opinions expressed in this video are those of the candidate and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Hermantown Area Chamber of Commerce. HACC does not endorse or support this campaign but instead is sharing this video for informational purposes only.

Attention Voters:

Below is a guide of the city, county, and statewide races that affect the majority of our membership service area.  There are MANY races this year.  There are a few resource links you can use below to make sure you are in the know.   We will do our best to keep this page updated as candidates become endorsed by their party, drop from the race, or after the primary narrows the field.
