Heather and Steve in the League of Women Voters Legislative Forums

On September 6 Heather Edelson and Steve Elkins appeared with their Republican opponents at the legislative forums sponsored by the Edina League of Women Voters. Kudos to the Edina LWV for sponsoring these forums!

Through their thoughtful answers to the many questions posed, both Heather and Steve showed why they should be our next members of the Minnesota House of Representatives.

Here are links that you can use to view videos of the forums.

State of Minnesota Political Contribution Refund Program


The PCR Program encourages small contributions from individuals and thus reduces the influence of large contributors and PACs in Minnesota's political campaigns.


The PCR Program allows anyone who is eligible to vote in Minnesota to receive a refund of up to $50 per person ($100 per married couple) for contributions made to state candidates and party units.  For a complete description of the rules, click here.


Your contribution to the Senate District 49 Democrats qualifies for this refund.  To contribute, click here.


After you contribute to the SD49 Democrats, you will receive by regular mail a receipt for your contribution, a simple form to fill in, and a pre-addressed envelope to use in claiming your refund.  The form is mercifully brief -- and takes only a moment to fill in. 


The form is available in two versions.  If you prefer to fill it in online, click here.  To fill it in by hand, click here.


After you mail in your form and receipt, you will receive a check (or direct deposit) from the Minnesota Department of Revenue.  Typically 6-8 weeks are required for the refund to be received.


Thanks for your contribution!  Your support for the Democrats is critical -- and greatly appreciated!
