Clean Election Reform Grades
Because Minnesotans deserve to know the positions of candidates seeking public office, we sent a survey to all state senate candidates asking if they support or oppose five clean election reforms. Candidates’ positions on these five reforms are spotlighted using the familiar A through F grade range. “A” means the candidate supports all five described reforms; “B” indicates the candidate supports 4 of the 5 described reforms; “C” indicates the candidate supports 3 of the 5 described reforms; “D” indicates the candidate supports 2 or 1 of the described reforms; “F” means the candidate opposes all five described reforms or chose not to respond. (Candidates were advised that not responding would result in an “F.”). These grades refer only to the candidate’s responses to the questions on this survey. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, Minnesota Citizens for Clean Elections endeavors to educate Minnesotans about our issues, but does not endorse or oppose individual candidates or political parties.
