Did you know nonprofits are allowed to do voter engagement? Many nonprofits are worried about doing anything that could be perceived as partisan – and MCN is here to help! Join MCN and other nonprofit partners to learn about the fall 2024 election, what nonprofits can and can’t do around voter engagement, hear from special guests, and connect with your fellow nonprofits. You will walk away feeling confident and energized to engage your constituencies in a nonpartisan way, and receive concrete resources for your nonprofit to use.

Speaker Information 

Secretary of State Steve Simon official headshotSteve Simon is Minnesota’s 22nd Secretary of State. He was sworn into office on January 5, 2015, and as Minnesota’s chief elections administrator pledged in his inaugural address to “work with anyone, of any political affiliation, from any part of our state” to protect, defend, and strengthen the right to vote in Minnesota. As Secretary of State, he partners with township, city, and county officials to organize elections on behalf of Minnesota’s nearly four million eligible voters, and to ensure that the election system is fair. Before being elected Minnesota’s Secretary of State, Simon served in the Minnesota House of Representatives for ten years representing the communities of St. Louis Park and Hopkins.

Simon also served as Assistant Attorney General of Minnesota and worked as a lawyer in private practice for several years. He was named a “Rising Star” four different times by Law & Politics magazine and has received many other recognitions for his work on behalf of Minnesotans, including the “Outstanding Legislator Award” from the Minnesota School Board Association and the “Civic Leadership Award” from the Citizens League.

Simon grew up in St. Louis Park and Hopkins. He graduated with a B.A in Political Science from Tufts University in Massachusetts in 1992, and earned a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1996.
