News from the League of Women Voters, St. Cloud Area (LWVSCA)
The 2024 Election Year is advancing quickly! The first major event will be the Presidential Primary on March 5, 2024, when Minnesota voters will go the polls and select who they want to be nominated for President of the United States. You must be a registered voter to cast a ballot and can pre-register online or at your county office through February 13. Alternatively, register in person on March 5 by following the requirements for same-day registration. See the "Voting" and "Elections" sections of this website for direct links to the information you need.
The General Election will held on November 5, 2024, and will include a number of open seats for the U. S. Congress and State of Minnesota. Plus, there will be many local races on the ballot for municipal, school board, and county offices. The League of Women Voters will be tracking filed candidates in our area and planning candidate forums.
All Minnesota voting law changes implemented in 2023 will apply during the upcoming 2024 Election Year: 1. automatic voter registration when obtaining state issued IDs (option to opt out); 2. preregistration of 16- and 17-year-olds; and 3. and restoration of voting rights for ex-offenders living in their communities.
LWVSCA will not meet in December and will resume monthly meetings in January. We have full slate of topics planned for 2024, ranging from “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” and “Book Bans” to the “Minnesota Green Bank” and “St. Cloud Community Policing Updates.” Background for the January 10, 2024, meeting will be published when information is available from the convener.
