League of Women Voters of Amity Participates in Vote411.org
Like planets lining up for a grand conjunction, Bethany, Orange, and Woodbridge are holding municipal elections on the same day for the first time in recent memory. This gives the League of Women Voters of Amity an opportunity to make efficient use of the national League’s online voter guide, Vote411.org, ahead of Election Day, November 7, 2023. Voter education is central to the League’s mission, and a nonpartisan Voters Guide is a key tool in that mission.
Vote411.org was launched by the national LWV Education Fund in 2006 as a “one-stop-shop” for election related information, including rules specific to each state. In its first operation of the Vote411 system, LWV Amity is posing questions to the candidates for First Selectman, Board of Selectmen, and Amity Board of Education. Invitations to participate were recently sent to those candidates, with each person’s own code for submitting the information they want to present to their voters.
Voters should be able to read candidate views by mid-October and may be able to follow up when a candidate’s campaign social media and contact information are also provided.
The League of Women Voters is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. For more information on making democracy work at the local level, contact Pua Ford, email@example.com, 203-305-4068.
