League of Women Voters Park Rapids (LWVPRA) would like to congratulate all the citizens of Hubbard County for voting in record numbers in this last election. Also thank you for supporting and attending our candidate forums. We can all take some time to breathing a huge sigh of relief that all the campaign ads are over and think of the holidays.
Are you a new Minnesota resident? Will you be turning 18 before Nov. 6? Have you moved since the last election day? Have you changed your name since the last time you voted? Celebrate democracy in America by registering or re-registering to vote on Tuesday, Sept. 25, National Voter Registration Day. Registering to vote online is simple, free and secure. Go to mnvotes.org and click on the "Register to Vote" link.
One of the easiest ways to become an informed voter is to go to the Secretary of State's website ( www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/whats-on-my-ballot ) to see who will be on your ballot. (While you are there, you can also register to vote and find out the many ways Minnesota provides access to voting.) Many of the names of candidates will be highlighted and take you to the candidates' websites where you can see what issues are important to them.
