News from the League of Women Voters, St. Cloud Area (LWVSCA)

Kudos to the state of Minnesota for conducting a secure, well-managed General Election. We are grateful to election administrators at the county and state levels for their extensive preparation, as well as for election workers who ensured that in-person voting at the polls went smoothly. We were number one again for the state with the best voter turnout rate. 

The LWVSCA Voter Service Team organized in-person candidate forums for select races covering the Minnesota legislature, local governments and school boards. We appreciated members of the public who contacted us in advance regarding questions to ask candidates. Thank you, too, to the audience members who submitted written questions. Each candidate in attendance had the opportunity to answer all questions posed by the respective forum moderators.

Firearms in Minnesota: Local League Consensus Meeting

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

1:00--2:30 p.m. via Zoom

The February monthly meeting will address the conclusions of a Firearms study conducted in 2022 by LWV Minnesota. Local Leagues statewide received the study report for review and response. LWVSCA members in attendance at the February 8, 2023, meeting will be asked to vote on eight (8) consensus questions posed in the study. Once local Leagues report their responses, the study committee may propose updates to the Firearms positions in “LWVMN Program for Action.” Any such proposals will be voted on by delegates to the spring LWVMN convention.
