Many of our LWV voter registration activities have been idled with the need for social distancing. However, you can’t keep League members down for long!
President Gretchen Sabel and Membership Chair Pat Kennedy designed an eye-catching postcard to be sent to persons on lists of unregistered voters providing clear, helpful steps for voter registration – including helpful phone numbers, outreach for those without computers, and of course, why to register to vote. The images above are what was sent.
Arlene Gillett recruited 10 LWV volunteers to address postcards to unregistered voters. LWV ABC's Youth Civic Engagement Fellow, Hailey Shaiger, led a group of Coon Rapids High School National Honor Society students in this project. All together, the volunteers mailed 750 postcards to unregistered voters in Anoka County!
We are looking for more projects like this that provide effective outreach and can be done from home - join our Voter Service team to help identify these projects and get them done. Email us at email@example.com to volunteer.
Expand your knowledge, participate in interesting discussions via Zoom. Member Pat Kennedy has organized some more noteworthy and relevant selections. Here are dates and descriptions for some of the upcoming titles.

We're continuing to bring Meet the Candidates forums to voters in our area, navigating the need for social distancing. With the help of local cable channels and Facebook Live, LWV volunteers are holding forums minus a "live" audience. Forums are recorded and made available on-demand on our website, on the LWV ABC YouTube channel, and broadcast on local cable stations.
Questions for candidates can be submitted via the form provided for each forum on our website.
In Anoka County, forums are being conducted with candidates for city offices, state legislative seats, county commissioners, and Anoka Conservation District 1. In Champlin, candidates for city council and state legislative seats will participate.
Check our LWV ABC website, below, where you can:
Thanks to co-sponsors, forum chairs, moderators, and volunteers, and to Geri Nelson , Linda Rodgers, and Bruce Pomerantz for leading this project.
Reminder: Early voting begins September 18, 2020!
