The League of Women Voters of Dakota County is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences policy through education and advocacy. We meet monthly and also host candidate forums, issue forums, and other events of interest to the community. Please attend one of our meetings or contact us for more information!


Candidates in Minnesota's statewide races and U.S. House races were asked by WCCO to submit a short video and written responses to a set of viewer’s questions. You can view them here.

Dakota County is developing a pedestrian and bicycle study to create a unified vision for countywide walking and bicycling networks. You can find more information about the study here and access the draft study here. The study will be integrated into Dakota County's 2040 Transportation Plan update in 2019. Dakota County is accepting input on the draft study via this survey through August 12.

Yesterday our volunteers registered voters and provided information as well as absentee ballot applications at the Dog Days of Summer event at Alimagnet Dog Park in Burnsville. Thanks to our volunteers, Carolyn Becker-Paulson, Tim Paulson, Lynn Lewis, and Pen Curry, and to Kristina Clark for organizing this as well as many other voter registration events!
