“An evening with Secretary of State Steve Simon and Sam Benson from MNIPL
The Woodbury, Cottage Grove Area League of Women Voters in partnership with The Grove United Methodist Church and Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light (MNIPL) will hold an online Zoom discussion on Voting and Your Values.
The upcoming 2020 election season poses many challenges for Minnesota voters in light of the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic. Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon will discuss plans to ensure every eligible voter can make their voice heard by Voting from Home, new safety procedures at the polling place for voters who choose to vote on Election Day, and a call to all to consider signing up to become a poll worker. Secretary Simon will also include an update on continued work to protect the integrity of our elections with cybersecurity partners.
Following that, Sam Benson from Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light (MNIPL) will discuss how one’s values can play out at the ballot box. In a non-partisan way. Sam will walk us through some of the major issues around sustainability that we as voters, citizens, and people face, and he will shed light on the connection between voting, government, and sustainability.
