LWV Park Rapids assisting voters on Sept. 24
As part of its going mission for the last 100 years of educating all voters, League of Women Voters Park Rapids (LWV) members will help people register to vote, check their registration and answer voting questions on National Voter Registration Day.
LWV volunteers will be on hand from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the Park Rapids Library.
National Voter Registration Day is a reminder to prepare for upcoming elections at every level of government.
In a news release, LWV notes that many politically aware citizens are focused on the 2020 presidential election, but some local government units also have elections this November.
Also, Minnesota has its first presidential primary on March 3, 2020, with precinct caucuses a week earlier on Feb. 25. A new law changes how political parties choose delegates to their presidential nominating conventions.
On Sept. 24, LWV will help voters understand the many ways Minneostans can vote – from in-person to absentee by mail.
LWV is a non-partisan volunteer organization whose mission is to encourage informed and active participation in government and to influence public policy through education and advocacy. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit lwvparkrapidsarea.blogspot.com.
