    Happy December! Fall flew by and we’re happy to wrap up another successful season. As we look back over the year, we are grateful to our members, supporters, board members, and volunteers who contributed so much.

    Here are some of the year’s highlights:

    • We held online broadcast programs about equity and accessibility in voting, the redistricting process, social studies standards, and rebuilding University Avenue.
    • Partnered with SPNN to host mayoral and school board forums that have been viewed over 9,000 times!
    • Engaged St. Paul youth in the electoral process through our Student Leaders program.
    • Published and distributed our Voter Guide (our most popular online stop) in English, Spanish and Hmong.
    • Grew our social media presence by increasing election-related messaging
    The most recent issue of The Voter is short but sweet. Along with the presidents' newsletter, you'll find book club musings, a recap and viewing links for our fall programs, plus more tidbits on the LWVSP.

    This is a recording of the October 26, 2021 live "Our St. Paul: Learn with the League" program. As Minnesota’s population grows, the state is becoming more diverse. According to the Center for Information and Research on Civil Learning and Engagement, in the 2020 Election, 65% of Minnesotans aged 18-29 voted. That is up from 2016. Nationally, 52-55% of 18-29 year old voters voted in 2020. For the third of this three-part series, LWVSP welcomes panelists Professor Paul Goren, voter Jordan Hartman, and voter Grace Reardon.
