The deadline for registering neighborhood electors and alternates for the upcoming NRP Policy Board election is Thursday, November 13. Each Minneapolis neighborhood organization can select an elector and alternate to vote on behalf of its neighborhood on election night. Neighborhood organizations representing more than one neighborhood need to select one elector and alternate from each neighborhood represented by the organization. Electors and alternates MUST reside in the neighborhood they are representing. Neighborhood organizations are encouraged to select electors/alternates at a well-publicized open meeting. Electors/alternates must be at least 18 years of age as of November 20, 2003. Elector registration forms have been distributed to all neighborhood organization board chairs. The forms must be completed, signed by the organization board chair or co-chair and returned to the The League of Women Voters of Minneapolis (LWV) office no later than Thursday, November 13, 2003.

Registered electors and elector alternates will be sent more detailed information about the upcoming forums and the election itself by the LWV.
