BackgroundEdit

The last election resulted in the Republican Party of Minnesota winning a majority of 76 seats, increasing the majority of 72 seats it won in 2014. It was the first time that a party has retained control of the House of Representatives since the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL) in the 2008 election. In conjunction with the result of the Senate election, it also resulted in the return of all-Republican control of the Legislature since 2012—only the second time the Republicans have held control of both houses since the return of partisan elections to the House in 1974 and the Senate in 1976 and marking the end of two years of split control between a Republican-held House and a DFL-held Senate.

A special election was held for District 32B on February 14, 2017, following the invalidation of its general election results. On September 8, 2016, the Minnesota Supreme Court found Republican incumbent Bob Barrett ineligible for election because he did not reside in his district. As the ruling occurred within 80 days of the general election, Barrett's name could not be replaced on the ballot.[1] Republican Anne Neu won the special election, increasing the Republican majority to 77 seats.[2]

Electoral systemEdit

The 134 members of the House of Representatives will be elected from single-member districts by first-past-the-post voting to two-year terms. Contested nominations of the DFL and Republican parties for each district were determined by an open primary election. Minor-party and independent candidates were nominated by petition. Write-in candidates must file a request with the secretary of state's office for votes for them to be counted.

The candidate filing period was from May 22 through June 5, 2018.[3]
