This project was completed as part of the 2018-2019 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Ramsey County. Historically, Ward 1 Precinct 9 in St. Paul, which encompasses the Frogtown Neighborhood, has experienced lower-than-average election turnout when compared to the rest of the state, especially among voters ages 18-24. Ramsey County Project Lead Dave Triplett worked with students in Doug Chapin’s PA 8081:
Election Administration Capstone Workshop to identify strategies to increase youth voter turnout in this precinct in future elections. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
