Name: Celebrate National Voter Registration Day: Sept 24th
Date: September 24, 2019
Time: 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM CDT
Event Description:

Drop by the Park Rapids Library on Tuesday September 24th to visit with League of Women Voters members about voting in Minnesota.

Many followers of our political scene are focused on the 2020 Presidential Elections, but some of our local government units do have elections in November of 2019. Also there is only about 170 days before Minnesota has its first presidential primary.  A new law changes how our political parties chooses the delegates to the party presidential nominating conventions. The Primary will be on March 3, 2020. Yes, there will also be a Precinct caucus held on February 25, 2020, one week before the Presidential Nomination Primary.
