More than 100 readers submitted questions after our call to join us in Curious Minnesota, a community-driven project that puts reader questions at the center of our reporting.
To kick off Curious Minnesota, we'll be answering these questions right away: When and why were the first skyways built in Minneapolis? Why has Minnesota never produced a U.S. president — and are there other states like us?
Since readers started submitting them, we've been sorting through the abundance of interesting questions about the people, places and culture of Minnesota — and now it's time for you to vote. Every week, we'll be putting a new group of questions up for a vote so that readers can help us pick the questions to answer first.
Which of these reader questions should we investigate next?
