To all League of Women Voters (LWV) members, candidates and community members who helped us put together our three local forums last week, thank you.
A special thanks to Shannon and Robin at the Park Rapids Enterprise who live streamed the forums each night and provided a back-up video when our video camera failed on Tuesday. It took many hands to make sure that information about local candidates gets to the public.
Now it is up to all the voters in Hubbard County, the city of Park Rapids and in Park Rapids School District 309 to get out and vote on Nov. 8.
Remember, you can also request absentee ballots to vote by mail or vote early in person at the Hubbard County Courthouse.
In the last election, we had over 86% of all registered voters in the county show up and vote. Can we break our record this year?
