For 2012, the League of Women Voters of Plainfield will be focusing on the following initiative:
Ready, Set, Vote!
This project will focus on educating new voters on the process of registering, understanding issues of importance to them, and on exercising the voting franchise at every election (primaries, school board elections, general elections, and special voter referendums.
In addition to voter registration throughout the year, this effort will culminate in two major events, one set right before the primary season, and one set before the fall election. The events will include information sessions, public demonstrations of the voting machines, along with a guide to this year's school board election, which will take place on the same day as the general election in November. The new ballot will be reviewed to ensure that all voters are knowledgeable about the new design. Stay tuned for more!
