In September 2013, our local League set up Voter Registration tables at both St. Olaf and Carleton. Not only did this provide us an opportunity to register voters, we also created important connections with college students, some of them becoming members of our League. In the coming year, our goal is to expand our registration efforts to local high schools.

You may recall that our local League is participating in the MLD program offered by LWVUS through the Ruth S. Shur Fellowship. Local president Ricky Peterson and board members Mary Hahn and Sarah Entenmann participate in a monthly call with our coach, Suzanne Kerwin of the Edina League. The focus of these calls is building membership and developing leadership. Local board member, Bonnie Jean Flom, serves as a coach for the Golden Valley and Edina Leagues. On November 5th when she traveled to Edina to meet with their League representatives, she noticed “Vote Today” signs in the neighborhoods she visited.
