The LWV Minneapolis hosted a successful and inspiring Fundraiser on Feb 20. We heard from Kelly Beadle of CIRCLE who presented data on youth engagement in the 2020 election. And we heard from three Minneapolis youth share their experiences. We will post the recording as soon as we can.

The 2020 General Election saw the largest voter turnout in American history, but at what rate did young voters participate and how did they affect the election outcome? What issues do young voters care about most and what are the barriers that prevent them from voting?
Kelly Beadle presented CIRCLE’s data on youth engagement in the 2020 election and participated in a dicussion to help us learn how to expand our youth voter engagement for the all-important Municipal Election this year. We also heard from a panel of Minneapolis youth, they shared their personal experiences, and gave us advice on how to engage with the Minneapolis youth.
