Local Election Resources 2021

Election Day is Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Election day is arriving soon in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The Junior League of Minneapolis is dedicated to improving communities through action, and one of the most important forms of action any individual can take is at the ballot box. Local elections often take place every year and, because of low voter turnout, some say that the most important and impactful elections that will affect you as an individual are your local ones.

Register to Vote on Election Day: You can register or update your registration when you vote, at a polling place on Election Day or at an early voting location. You will need proof of residence to register.

Decisions in St. Paul:

Don’t live in Minneapolis or St. Paul? Visit the MN Secretary of State’s “What’s on my ballot?” to see the races, candidates and issues up for a vote in your community. 

The Junior League of Minneapolis is non-political, non-partisan, and does not support or endorse any political candidates.

Junior League of Minneapolis Little Black Dress Initiative

LBDI Advocate: Jeni Ness

Our members are wearing the same black dress or outfit for five consecutive days from September 20-24, 2021. Wearing an outfit for five straight days draws attention to the opportunity gap by symbolizing one of the many barriers to learning for high mobility students – not having consistent access to their own clothes, toys and books. LBDI gives us an opportunity to celebrate and fund JLM’s projects that inspire a love of learning, which can help kids who face these kinds of pressures.

  • How many years have you been in the JLM? What committee are you on?

I’ve been in the JLM for 6 years and I’m the New Member Director this year.

  • With so many great organizations to support, why should others choose to support the JLM?

JLM is a unique organization that helps women realize their own potential by teaching valuable leadership skills  by helping our community. The skills, talents, and passion for making our community better are all things that are also able to be applied to life outside of JLM.

  • What do you enjoy about volunteering with the JLM? What motivates you to volunteer? 

I love the impact JLM has on our community.  One of my favorite moments comes from a volunteer opportunity with JLM’s 30 Million Words, and seeing the joy on a kid’s face.

  • What prompted you to join in the LBDI initiative this year?

I want to help raise awareness for the issues facing our community and to show off an organization that I am proud to be a part of, and the difference we are making.

  • What do you do when you aren’t working or volunteering?

When I’m not working or volunteering- I can either be found out hiking or exploring the world, reading, or cooking/baking.
