West Side partners with the Minnesota Secretary of State's Promote the Vote Program (Jun. 23rd, 2014)
West Side Community Health Services is partnering with the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Promote the Vote program to provide voter registration services to the public. The goal of the outreach effort is to encourage voter participation during this significant election year: On November 4, Minnesota voters will head to the polls to decide a U.S. Senate seat, all of Minnesota’s eight U.S. House seats, as well as governor and other state officers, and all Minnesota State House seats. There will be many important local and county elections on the ballot as well in 2014.
A voter outreach specialist from the Secretary of State will be onsite at La Clinica (Mondays 1-3 pm) and East Side Family Clinic (Wednesdays 1-3 pm) on a regular basis starting June 23, and continuing through October. Eligible voters can register to vote and ask questions about how to participate in Minnesota elections.
Eligible voters are encouraged to visit the Office of the Secretary of State’s website mnvotes.org as a valuable voter resource. The site includes many helpful tools for voters to: check their voter registration status; register to vote; request an absentee ballot to vote early; find their polling place; view a sample ballot to learn about candidates and more.
