Voters Service

  • Thanks to Volunteers
    Kathryn 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?
    After 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 vrandolph517@alltel.net or call 699.5582 to volunteer.
  • Public Service Announcements
    The 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.
    APTV 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.
  • October League Event:  Campaign Forum
    This month’s LWVGB event offers a rare opportunity to hear opposing candidates interact with an audience.  The League is co-sponsoring a campaign forum with Hadassah on Sunday October 22 from 4-6 pm.  The event will take place at the Chabad House, 3040 Overton Road, Mountain Brook.  Participants include candidates for Secretary of State, Beth Chapman and Nancy Worley; candidates for Probate Judge Place 1, Mark Gaines and Alan King; candidates for Probate Judge Place 2, Sherri Friday and Sunny Smallwood; and candidates for Circuit Court 15 Judge, John Calhoun and Suzanne Childers.  Don’t miss it!
