Get a Blue Book!


The Minnesota Legislative Manual, also known as the Blue Book, is a comprehensive guide to Minnesota’s government, including information on the state legislature, state executive offices, state agencies, and state judiciary; local, federal, and tribal governments; as well as 2016 election results. It is published every two years under the direction of the Secretary of State.

Secretary Simon dedicated the 2017-2018 Blue Book in honor of the men and women who worked on the historic restoration of the Minnesota Capitol Building from 2013 to 2017. It includes a special section of photographs showing various stages of the restoration, as well as some photographs from the original construction of the building in the early 1900s.
