Doors open, signs up: Beltrami County DFL and GOP open election headquarters


BEMIDJI -- The Beltrami County chapters of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor and Republican parties have opened up shop in Bemidji recently with the hope that voters will stop in and pick up a few signs.

The GOP's campaign headquarters opened at 1008 Paul Bunyan Drive NW while the DFL has set up its center downtown at 401 BeltramI Ave. NW. According to chairs of both local parties, the office locations can change every election cycle depending on what's available.

While both locations are now filled with plenty of signs, though, Beltrami County DFL Chair Steve Nelson said there's not as many as years past because of the lack of statewide elections. In 2016, none of the incumbent Democrats including Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Gov. Mark Dayton are up for elections, making the November races much more localized.
