MPR: Fed up with campaign, some voters seek alternatives

Another ballot repeat is the Green Party's Jill Stein, who garnered less than one half of 1 percent of Minnesota's votes in 2012.

Minnesota Green Party Chairman Brandon Long is convinced she'll do much better this time. 

He expects Stein to attract votes from people who backed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the nomination contest but haven't warmed up to Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate.

"Bernie Sanders was somebody that really ignited a lot of interest," Long said. "A lot of people who particularly were independent in the first place, he brought them into the [Democratic] Party. And then they're not really feeling appreciated or wanted, and so a lot of people are saying, 'Look, we need another option,' and Jill Stein and the Green Party is it."
