Congressional District

Minnesota has 8 Congressional districts. Olmsted county is part of the First Congressional district. Their web site can tell you more about that.

In even-numbered years, the BPOU — Olmsted county — convention elects delegates and alternate delegates (a.k.a. alternates) to our judicial district, congressional district, and state conventions. In Olmsted county, the same delegates and alternates serve for all three purposes.

The grouping by house districts is for organizing the balloting and displaying the results; all voting is by all county delegates and each delegate represents the entire county. The number of representatives is based on the number of Jeff Johnson / Bill Kuisle votes in the 2014 election.

For 2016 and 2017, these are our representatives. The sequence is alphabetical.

For 2016 and 2017, these alternate delegates replace delegates who cannot attend to their obligations. Each district was allowed to elect up to twice as many alternates as delegates. The sequence is numeric and represents rank order.

Alternates are seated in rank order within the house district from which they were nominated and elected. When a district does not have enough native alternates to fill its allotted representation, alternates from other Olmsted districts fill those seats. However, rank has no meaning outside the district in which one was elected so cross-seated alternates are chosen by lot.
