Voter Registration | Volunteer in local libraries and food shelves this fall

07 Aug 2017 12:22 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

As we continue to plan for this fall's registration efforts, we have partnered with a number of libraries and food shelves in Saint Paul. We need volunteers for any of the locations and times listed below up until October 19 which is the cutoff for early registration. 

We are especially hoping to have a volunteer presence in areas where the voter turnout has been low, especially: Rice Street Library, Hayden Heights Library, Arlington Hills Library and the food shelves.

Please sign up for a 2-hour shift this fall by emailing Wendy Jones at wajone@gmail.com. If you have any questions about our voter registration initiatives, please email Sigrid Johnson at sigrid.johnson@comcast.net.
