Ballot access

Minnesota Law requires “minor party” candidates wishing to have their name placed on the general election ballot to obtain nominating petition signatures. The number of signatures required depends on the office being sought.

  • U.S. Senator: 2,000 signatures
  • State Office voted on Statewide (including Presidential Electors): 2,000 signatures
  • U.S. Congressional Office: 1,000 signatures
  • County or legislative office: 500 signatures

The signatures must be obtained and the nominating petitions must be filed during the filing period which is generally about two week’s time.

Currently the only political parties designated with “major party” status are the Democratic Farmer-Labor (DFL), Independence Party and the Republican Party. All others must follow the above mentioned ballot access requirements.
