Board of Supervisors

Lake SWCD Board Group Photo 2018

SWCD Supervisors serve four-year, staggered terms. Generally, two or three of an SWCD's five supervisors are up for election every two years. These positions have been local, elected officials since SWCDs began to form in 1937. Since 1971, the positions have appeared on the November ballot as a nonpartisan office.

The Lake SWCD Board of Supervisors meets every second Thursday of the month at noon at our office:
408 First Avenue
Two Harbors, MN 55616
We encourage the public to attend these meetings to learn more about what Lake SWCD is up to!

If you are interested in representing the SWCD as a Board Member in District 3 (Ward 1 and Ward 3 of the City of Two Harbors), we are currently in the process of searching for a new District 3 Supervisor! Please contact Karen at (218) 834-8370 with inquiries.

Sometimes it is difficult to tell where a precise location is in map boundaries. The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, Elections & Voting section, has a Polling Place Finder. You may use this tool to find your polling place (where you vote, map & directions), districts for your precinct, “Candidates on My Ballot” (candidates and questions on the ballot at your next election, when available).
Here is the link.

From there you may look up your specific address. Options include “Find by Zip Code” and “Search by County.” Next, enter your house number. Select your street from a drop-down list. Once you have completed these steps, your results will include the following Districts for your address: Congressional, Minnesota Senate, Minnesota House, County Commissioner, Judicial, Park, Soil and Water Conservation, School and County. Your results will include Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
