Official numbers show presidential election voter turnout in Minnesota’s most-populous county, Hennepin, was 85 percent, even higher than the statewide average of around 80 percent. 760-thousand people in Hennepin County voted in the 2020 election — nearly 70 percent by absentee ballot. That compares to 685-thousand in the last presidential election. That massive block of votes in Hennepin County strongly leaned toward Democrat Joe Biden, a lead that votes from pro-Trump areas of Greater Minnesota could not overcome. Analysts say greater turnout of metro area Democrats in 2020 is what put Minnesota in the “blue” column by a stronger margin than in 2016.
