Cleveland Teachers Union Ballot Counting Fundraiser @ North Shore AFL-CIO Labor Building
Mar 15 @ 4:00 pm

It’s that time again! LWVGC is gearing up again to manage the elections for the Cleveland Teachers Union. Ballot counting will take place Friday, March 15 starting at 4 pm. This is a fundraiser for LWVGC as the CTU pays us for our services. It’s a unique chance to meet and interact with Leaguers from different chapters as we work together to tally thousands of ballots from the dozens of schools in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. It’s democracy in action mixed with great League camaraderie.

We need about 50 volunteers so bring a friend! Neighbors, spouses and older teenagers are welcome. Each volunteer will have the option to designate a LWVGC chapter of their choice to receive $10 for every hour that they work. Non-members are welcome.

Ballot counting will take place in downtown Cleveland at the North Shore AFL-CIO Labor Building at 3250 Euclid Ave. The building has easy, free parking and dinner is provided. We will start at 4 pm and will go until we are done, hopefully before 9 pm. The more people we have counting, the faster we get done! You do not need to commit to the whole time. You may come for any period of time that is convenient for you.

To volunteer or ask questions, contact Meryl Simon at 216-932-9252 or merylsimon18@gmail.com. When you sign up, please give us a phone number, email address and tell us what time you are available.

Thank you!
