About the District
The largest district in the Minnesota Senate, District 3 covers a vast expanse of the state’s arrowhead region. It goes along the north shore of Lake Superior, to the East Range, and encompasses the tribal lands of Grand Portage and Bois Forte.
District 3 comprises Cook County, Koochiching County, Lake County, and parts of St. Louis County and Itasca County. It’s also home to Voyageurs National Park, along with a number of state parks, trails, forests, and lakes. There are endless possibilities for exploring the region, whether you’re into ATVing or snowmobiling, hunting or fishing, camping or hiking. Those of us lucky enough to live here have a deep respect for nature and an enduring love for the outdoors.
Minnesota’s Strong Democratic Tradition
In Minnesota, we love our state, and we know how important it is to make our voices heard as part of the democratic process. That’s why Minnesota has some of the highest voter turnout rates in the country. In fact, Minnesota has led the country in voter turnout in the last three national elections, with a record-setting 79.96% of eligible voters voting in 2020.
In Minnesota, we work hard to ensure Minnesota’s elections stay safe and secure by investing in IT security and utilizing paper ballots. For more information on election security and fairness, please visit the website of Minnesota’s Secretary of State.
