you ever used Vote411.org before an election? This
is the League of Women Voters online Voter Guide. In 2012,
our Local League started using it as a way to collect and
publish information on candidates and issues before each
election. We often export the content to create a print
version for voters who do not have access to (or prefer
not to use) computers.
Citizens who are new to Vote411 are so enthused and appreciative
of the information. They tell me they think it's great.
Vote411 was not perfect in 2012 but it has improved every
year. It is not perfect now, and every week will see changes
until the August 2 Primary, but when we go live (about June
25), it will be an excellent way to access the candidates
and ballot proposals on your ballot. Just enter your address
and follow the links to the information.
The LWVMI Voter Service Director, Eva Packard, has contacted
candidates running for all State offices. This includes
the candidates for the 9th, 11th, 13th and 15th Districts
for State Representative. The Local Leagues in Wayne County
met and divided the responsibilities for County offices.
Our League has contacted candidates running for the 13th,
14th, and 15th County Commission seats, and all 11 candidates
running for the 4 non-incumbent seats for 3rd Circuit Court.
Our Local League has also contacted the 3 local judicial
candidates running for Dearborn's 19th District Court.
