Election Information - LWV Voter guide has gone digital
The VOTER GUIDE, published prior to elections by the League of Women Voters of the Lima Area, will not be available in a printed version for this election; it will be available in digital format on VOTE411.org. This web-base VOTE411 program was launched by the League of Women Voters Education Fund in October 2006 and has been tested extensively throughout the nation. Designed to be a “one-stop-shop” for specific state and local election information, this platform has the potential to reach many more voters than we could reach with printed copies.
INTERACTIVE WEBSITE: Voters can type in their addresses and find information specific to their ballot. Comparison of candidates’ views on issues can even be done in the program. The information can be printed if one chooses and take it with them to the polls for a reference. To access Vote411 click on this VOTE411 link and follow the instructions on the website. You will be asked to type in your address to go to your local ballot. Your address is not saved when you log out.
ISSUES, including the two state issues, are available on a printable .pdf file. Access it with a click on the link below. This document includes the ballot language and the pros and cons of State issues 1 and 2; and the ballot language of local school and municipal tax issues.
