Vote411 information distribution underway
The Westlake/North Olmsted Chapter of the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland (LWVGC) will participate in National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 22, in a different way than in previous years when registration tables could be easily set up in high-traffic public places. This year, the chapter’s focus will be to provide voters with information that will help them fill out their general election ballots.
On Tuesday, Sept. 22, the chapter will distribute VOTE411 bookmarks at both Westlake Porter Public Library and the North Olmsted branch of Cuyahoga County Library. In addition, the chapter will deliver VOTE411 bookmarks to selected senior living facilities and to food pantries in both cities.
VOTE411.org is a national online voter guide provided free of charge by the League of Women Voters Education Fund. Computer users who open the VOTE411 site will find personalized voting information about candidates and issues on their ballot.
For Cuyahoga County, all candidates for elective office, at federal, state and local levels have been invited to submit personal background statements and their answers to a set of questions generated by the League of Women Voters. While not all candidates respond, the information from those who do can assist a voter in making choices.
VOTE411.org will also include a list of pros and cons about the proposed charter amendments for the cities of Westlake and North Olmsted.
