Voters across Minnesota took to the polls Tuesday for municipal elections ranging from city council to school board.

All 13 City Council seats in Minneapolis, and all 7 City Council seats in St. Paul were up for grabs. Four of seven seats were up for election on the St. Paul School Board.

In other parts of the state, St. Louis Park residents elected the state’s first Somali American mayor, Golden Valley voters chose between two mayoral candidates, and in Duluth, a drug and alcohol counselor who just had her right to vote restored this year after run-ins with the law lost her bid for City Council.
