What does the LWV Wayzata-Plymouth Area do?
- LWV works with Orono, Westonka and Wayzata High School students, seniors and all eligible voters in-between, providing voter registration education and assistance and absentee voting information.
- For example:
- LWVWPA’s current Vote Safely from Home campaign involves outreach to city clerks, senior housing managers, houses of worship, food shelf administrators and other essential service providers across our seven-city area. Thanks to LWVWPA volunteers, over 150 community sites have been contacted and 60 packets of customized materials delivered throughout the Wayzata-Plymouth Area. Community outreach continues as businesses begin to open.
- LWVWPA members work directly with high school students to engage the Youth Vote, planning on-line voter registration campaigns and voter registration outreach to graduating seniors.
- LWV hosts local Candidate Forums for city, county and state elections as a critical public service to educate voters about the issues and candidates. For example:
- In preparation for the 2020 General Election, LWVWPA is hosting seven separate candidate forums, moderating Q&A with local candidates for city councils, mayor, state representative, state senator, county commissioner, and district representatives to the U.S. Congress.
- Candidate Forums are recorded without audiences during the coronavirus pandemic and available for on-demand public viewing through cities and the LWVWPA website. Members of the public are invited to submit questions for the candidates in advance.
- LWV addresses current issues at our bi-monthly LWVWPA membership meetings such as election security, voting rights, climate change and equal rights. Through monthly electronic LWVWPA Updates and news blasts from LWVMN and LWVUS, we inform our members and community of current pending legislation and opportunities for timely citizen actions.
Your membership will help us build a stronger community for all. Please join us!
