Volunteer Voter Ambassador Application

Voter ambassador volunteers should have the desire and willingness to:

  • Access social networks to engage other residents and community advocates.
  • Conduct one-on-ones with other residents and leaders.
  • Attend community sessions, meetings, and events to promote and share education material on elections and Ranked Choice Voting.
  • Communicate clearly with voters.
  • Engage with and serve within diverse populations.

Participation in the ambassador program is open without restrictions based on residency, citizenship, or eligibility to vote. It is, however, necessary for all ambassadors to be able to speak and read English in order to be able to participate in the training. Fluency in an additional language is a definite asset to being able to help engage a broader spectrum of city residents. Many of the materials available to ambassadors to share with others will be translated into additional key languages.

Ambassadors must be at least 16 years of age, and must have the consent of their parent or guardian to participate if under age 18.

It may be shared with organizations at your request. It may also be shared as required by current or future laws.

The following data that the City of Minneapolis collects from you on this application is "public": job history, education and training, and work ability. Your name is considered private until you are selected as a volunteer.
