The Winona DFL’s Short Film “Up Is Down,” or How To Stand Together in a Diverse America

The Winona County DFL knows that America is currently polarized by media and the growing influence of partisan politicians. However, we believe that Americans still agree on most basic principles on a strong America. The Winona DFL also believes we can still listen to each other and return the U.S. to its heyday as a place where people come together to build a better nation and local community. Check out our video Up and Down about the truths we all need and believe in.

Protect Your Freedoms: Vote Democratic

Are You Ready to Vote!!

Get Ready to Vote

Although it is not an election year, many fundamental rights and much-needed policies hang in the balance. Be ready to vote to defend your freedoms!

We need to get the right people in the right political offices who will use their power to make progress–not those who wish to use their power to stall America’s progress.  

Truly every vote matters, so make sure yours counts!

Election Security

The integrity of our elections has been under attack across our nation, despite no substantial facts to discredit recent election results, and massive evidence that American elections are the cleanest they have ever been. 

The best protection for America and Minnesota against restrictions in voting rights or partisan, tampered elections is to volunteer to be an election judge or election observer. 

Contact your local government to become a judge or an observer, either unaffiliated or on behalf of the Democratic party.
