News from the League of Women Voters, St. Cloud Area (LWVSCA)
LWVSCA believes that the continued integrity and vitality of Minnesota's elections depend on informed voters and barrier-free access to the ballot. Legislatively in 2023, we support expanding voter registration for Minnesotans with:
1. automatic voter registration when obtaining state issued IDs (opt out rather than opt in),
2. preregistration of 16- and 17-year-olds, and
3. restoration of voting rights for ex-offenders living in their communities.
LWVSCA members are planning to participate in upcoming community events and can talk about these and other legislative priorities, as well as assist with voter registration.
Learning about what's involved with "good government" and civic engagement can begin in the primary and secondary grades, and then continue into higher education and beyond. Towards that end, we are available to visit schools and organizations to talk about election procedures and voting rights as key elements of participatory democracy.
March is Women's History Month!
The League of Women Voters has been at the forefront of advocacy for women's political representation since our founding on February 14, 1920. The League encourages women to exercise their voting rights, to seek elective office, and to provide input to their elected officials. We support public policies that contribute to women's legal equality, physical health and safety, and economic parity. To learn more about the League at the local, state and national levels, go to the Membership page on this website.
