The League of Women Voters of Roseville Area, co-hosting with the Ramsey County Library, will host a panel of experts on ranked choice voting (RCV) with emphasis on how it works in cities. RCV allows voters the option to rank candidates in order of preference. We are fortunate to have as speakers:


Windows and Mirrors - Generating Generational Voting? - Florence Sprague - October 2022

Do you vote? I hope that sounds like a silly question to ask of an LWV of Roseville Area member. How do you think of voting? Is it a right...a privilege...a responsibility...a duty...an opportunity...a power...a burden? Pointless?

Minnesota is proud of its high voter turnout in general elections. (You can view lots of voter data at https://www.sos.state.mn.us/election-administration-campaigns/data-maps/historical-voter-turnout-statistics/) About 80% of eligible voters voted in 2020. But when one looks at the numbers by age, it is clear that we cannot stop promoting voting.
