In addition to the program, the annual meeting includes a light dinner and a short business meeting. Guests are welcome at the dinner and program. The members’ business meeting will include elections for board and committees, and voting on the 2016-17 program and budget.

Volunteer opportunity - register new citizens to vote
Each year, volunteers from LWV Minnesota and local leagues help register hundreds of new citizens across Minnesota to vote at citizenship ceremonies. Volunteers distribute voter registration forms and answer any questions new citizens may have. It is a great way to get involved and a heartfelt experience to watch the citizenship ceremony! If you are interested in volunteering at any of the ceremonies below, please email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
