Demystifying Voting

Join Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and State House Candidate Emma Greenman one week before the election for inspiration and information.

One week before the election, Attorney General Keith Ellison and Minnesota House Candidate are joining us for a conversation structured around voting. Their aim is to demystify voting and to help audience members identify and address misinformation that they might encounter. The state of Minnesota is working tirelessly to ensure that each vote is counted in the upcoming election, and these two leaders are generously taking time from their schedules to help inform the public.

For audience members who would like to be in the Zoom room asking questions, Mixed Blood is proud to partner with WeShowUp for ticket reservations. Unlike most ticketing systems which ask for an up front payment, WeShowUp allows you to reserve for free, and asks after the event what the experience was “worth”. If you are not a Mixed Blood Member, this is where you will make reservations.

If you are a Mixed Blood member, make sure you are logged in to the website before making a reservation (or email

We will also be streaming the event live on Facebook
