Published On: December 15th, 2022

(Minneapolis, MN) – December 15, 2022: Yesterday, the Public Interest Legal Foundation reached an agreement with Dakota County furthering the county’s policies and procedures designed to locate and remove duplicate voter registrations.

Dakota County had policies and procedures in place to locate and remove duplicate voter registrations, which procedures not only followed, but exceeded, the guidance of the Minnesota Secretary of State.  The County and PILF agreed that the County will take additional steps to further ensure that duplicate registrations are caught and do not end up on the county voter roll.

“This agreement is a win for election integrity,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams. “Dakota County’s agreement to take additional steps to locate and remove duplicate voter registrations from Minnesota’s statewide voter registration system illustrates a commitment to election integrity. Accurate voter rolls are essential to free and fair elections.”

The Foundation still has three active HAVA complaints against three Minnesota counties. The counties with ongoing complaints are Hennepin, Nicollet, and Ramsey.

James Dickey of the Upper Midwest Law Center served as local counsel.
