League of Women Voters offers 'hands-on' voter guide help

What good is an online voter guide if you’re uncertain about how to use it? The Westlake-North Olmsted Chapter of the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland will tackle this dilemma in two public sessions during October.

The free hands-on sessions will take place on Thursday, Oct. 9, at 1 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Computer Lab at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road. Attendees from all local communities will be able to take home a printout of their selections to use as they cast their ballots for the Nov. 4 election.

The LWV of Greater Cleveland has teamed with the Northeast Ohio Media Group to prepare an online voter guide covering the Nov. 4 elections. The voter guide at vote.cleveland.com is expected to be up and running by Oct. 1. This resource follows the League’s longstanding non-partisan format for candidate-supplied information that is disseminated exactly as prepared by the candidates. The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose candidates.

For further information about the help sessions, call Carole Koscielny at 440-356-4544.

Oct. 6 is the last day one can register to vote or update personal information on the voting lists. Absentee voting begins Oct. 7. Requests for absentee ballots are due to the Board of Elections no later than noon on Nov. 1.

Early voting hours at Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, 2925 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, are: weekdays, Oct. 7-31: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; 
Saturday, Oct. 25: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; 
Saturday, Nov. 1: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
