Democratic Gov. Tim Walz is seeking a second term. He is being challenged by Republican former State Sen. Scott Jensen.

In a bizarre coincidence, this will be the second consecutive election where the Legal Marijuana Now nominee died after the ballot was finalized. In 2020, Adam Weeks got about 6% of the vote, so the presence of Paula Overby - this year's nominee - on the ballot could make a difference in a close race.
Republicans hold a narrow 34-31 edge over Democrats in the Minnesota State Senate. There is one independent and one vacancy. The chamber uses a 2-4-4 system: Terms are four years in length except two years for the election immediately preceding a redistricting. The 2020 elections were for two years, the ones this year and in 2026 will be for four years.
