We speak with Ellen Wiss, a member of the Voter Service Committee of the League of Women Voters in Duluth, who shares important information about tomorrow's primary election in Duluth, including who can vote, what seats are on the ballot, and when the polls open and close.

Getting from Point A to Point B is a big deal in Duluth.

There are a lot of options (walking, biking, public transportation, skiing) and a lot of challenges (weather, bike-friendly streets, access to transportation for folks without cars or with disabilities).

No one wants the sneezing, sniffling, stuffy-headed co-worker spreading their germs in the workplace.

No one wants a kid missing school to take care of a younger sibling who's sick.

And it's horrifying to think someone would have to choose between making a mortgage or rent payment and leaving a situation of domestic violence.

But adding paid sick and safe time leave is expensive, complex, and there's no one-size-fits-all plan.

So Duluth's Earned Safe and Sick Time Task Force is trying to come up with options tailored for Duluth.
