The freedom American citizens all enjoy includes the right to vote on Election Day. It is also a responsibility at the core of our American democracy.

Remember that your vote is important, as each vote can make the diffference in a local, state or even a presidential race. Minnesota has an example of a close election when the 2008 U.S. Senate race was decided by only 312 votes.

The majority of Minnesota polling places open at 7 a.m. this morning and will close at 8 p.m. Then the vote counting begins in each precinct.

For information on where you can vote, call your city clerk or county auditor. You can also visit the Secretary of State's Web site: www.sos.sstate.mn.us .

Follow wctrib.com for election results as they become available.
