QUESTION: I’m a bit confused about technical corrections vs those that need to go through the legislature

@Annastacia: There is a specific statement at the very end of the court orders for congressional and legislative maps that says "Defendants [SoS Office] shall conduct elections using the [congressional/legislative] districts adopted in this order or any constitutional plan subsequently enacted by the Minnesota Legislature and the Governor of the State of Minnesota." The court leaves the door open for the legislature and governor to change the maps.

Granite Falls Twp is a voter privacy issue, too. There's just a few voters in a different house district from the rest of the township.

I have a question about effective dates of maps. I work for a neighborhood organization in Saint Paul, and the City has decided to only post the new maps on the date of the primary. If people are in a new district or ward, it seems reasonable to post the updated maps at least a little earlier than the day that they might want to vote.
