Talk with legislators, voice your opinion at Minnesota State Fair

The popular Capitol hats will again be available at the House of Representatives booth at the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

Fairgoers are invited to weigh in on hot political topics and meet with legislators during their visit to the House of Representatives’ booth at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair.

Among the booth highlights is the annual House opinion poll that draws the attention of around 10,000 participants and will, once again, be available.

Fairgoers can let their opinions be known on a number of issues, including abortion, recreational marijuana use, tax credit for funding private school scholarships, taxes for transit, firearm background checks and felon voting rights.

Poll results are scheduled to be on the House website Sept. 3, the day after the fair closes.

Also back is a photo opportunity as you stand behind of a replica of the House Speaker’s desk. Complete with flags and the Abraham Lincoln portrait, the display gives you a feel for what it is like to stand in this position of power. Be sure to find out the fascinating history behind the portrait.

The House of Representatives exhibit is located in the Education Building on Cosgrove Street, just north of Dan Patch Avenue.
