Equity and Accessibility in Voting: Young Voters Barriers to the Polls

  • 26 Oct 2021
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM (CDT)
  • Zoom
Join us for the third installment in a three-part "Learn with the League" series on the difficulties voters can experience due to physical limitations, language, and other issues.  Come hear a panel of advocates explore and describe barriers to voting for those aged 18-29 at the online program, "Equity and Accessibility in Voting: Barriers for Young Voters," on Tuesday, October 26, 7:00pm - 8:00pm. 

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, Chair of the Department of Political Science at the U of M College of Liberal Arts, and voters Jordan Hartman and Grace Reardon.

In the interest of public health and safety, this will be a virtual event. The event will be available via Zoom and also will be shown on LWVSP's Facebook page.  Interested participants can register on Zoom

The Zoom webinar will be closed captioned and livestreamed on Facebook and also rebroadcast through St Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN) and SCCTV. This program is also supported by the League of Women Voters of Roseville Area and the League of Women Voters White Bear Lake Area.

This is the final program in LWVSP's "Equity and Accessibility in Voting" series.  Access to the first two  programs in the series is available on the League's website.
