Public invited to panel discussion about elections

The public is invited to a panel discussion about the importance of elections and how the election process works on Tuesday, Oct. 21.

The event is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Salvi Lecture Hall, located on the third floor of Saint Mary’s Hall.

Panel members include Jeff Narabrook, voter outreach director for the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State; Scott McMahon, Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs associate vice president for external relations; and Dr. David Lynch, department chair and professor of social science.

The event will be held in a question-and-answer format, with the Saint Mary’s student Legislative Affairs Committee asking questions of the panelists prior to opening up questioning to the public. Information will be provided to students about voting locations, and there will be time for discussions about ballot measures that affect the Saint Mary’s and greater Winona communities.
