On Election Day, Tuesday November 7, voters across the country will head to the polls to cast their ballots in thousands of state and local elections. If you have elections in your area, now is the time to think about how and when you’ll vote, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

What do you need to vote? The League is proud to provide VOTE411.org, our digital voter guide for all election-related material. This one-stop-shop includes registration deadlines, absentee and early voting information, polling place locations, and ID requirements where they exist. In hundreds of communities nationwide, we will also have detailed information about candidates and issues on the ballot.
Who represents your beliefs? Up and down the ballot, candidates are asking you to hire them to represent you. You, and your friends and family, have important decisions to make that will impact your community and our country.
Enter your address at VOTE411.org to build your personalized voting guide that may include which offices and ballot questions you will see when you vote, as well as nearby candidate debates and forums, so you can hear directly from the candidates on the issues that matter most to you.
Voting allows us to make an impact on critical issues and policies. Please encourage the people in your life to vote in this year’s important elections, and to find the information they need at VOTE411.org.
Thank you for Making Democracy Work®.
Sincerely,

Maggie Bush
Programs & Outreach DirectorPlease try to attend candidate forums and ask them questions

The League would incourage you to attend candidates meetings and ask them questions. It is a sad fact that because of Gerrymandering our elected officials do not have to vote as there constituents want them to -and never hold any town halls or attend  debates. When ask questions about their votes ,( our representative voted to cut Medicare by $487 billion after her 1.5 trillion cut to Medicaid failed to pass the Senate) they refuse to answer. Many times decisions are made behind closed doors when open meetings and voting are traditionally  required. This happens from city planning all the way up to Washington DC . Please, don’t let our democracy go to the way side.  Hold your elected officials accountable, be informed about the issues, and get out and VOTE.
