- Thanks to Volunteers
Kerchof and Ida Hyche registered voters at the O’Neal Steel Company on
October 3. Betty Warnock will register voters and assist with
applications for absentee ballots at Episcopal Place. League members
will help the Registrar’s Office on Election Day, November 7. Look for
an email in your inbox soon to sign up for Election Day duty. (It’s
fun AND educational!)
- Would You Like a Project with the League?
the November 7 election, the League will begin updating Government at
Your Fingertips. This handy flier incorporates elected officials who
are responsible to the Jefferson County and Shelby County residents.
We could use some help. Basically it requires checking to see who won
the races and contacting them to obtain mailing addresses, telephone
numbers, email addresses and web sites. It is an easy task, but
essential that we get it right. Send an email to Virginia Randolph
email@example.com or call 699.5582 to volunteer.
- Public Service Announcements
LWVGB is sending PSAs to local radio and television stations
encouraging people to register in time to vote (by October 26), to
apply for absentee ballots and return in time (November 6) and to bring
appropriate identification when going to the polls on November 7.
- Candidate Forum on APTV October 30 at 7 p.m.
will air a live candidate forum on October 30 that will feature
candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General.
Plan to tune in to the broadcast and call in questions.
