Volunteer to Register Voters, 2018 General Election

Go here for an updated calendar with events where you can register voters.

To help register voters at these events, contact Roz Peters, 216-339-0006) or Patricia Carter (h_bound@ameritechnet).

View the LWVO powerpoint with information on how to register voters.  It also tells how to ensure that the League gets credited with the registration, so that we can continue to get funding for voting registration.

From our co-president, Susan Murnane:

The midterm elections are rapidly approaching and there is great need to register voters, especially potential voters from underserved communities.  Also, the US Supreme Court decision affirming the Ohio purge of irregular voters means all voters should verify their registration status. Fortunately, LWV Greater Cleveland has received a grant from Cleveland Votes to help in this work.  

Please advise us if you know of events where we should be out registering voters.

The conditions of our grant require us to follow certain procedures in order to document the number or voters we have registered, vote by mail applications secured, and pledge to vote cards collected. Although many of you have registered voters before, all volunteers need to be trained in the new procedures.  If you are not already trained, Roz or Patricia can arrange for that too.

At national convention we were enjoined to tell our story better—people need to know what we do—and the way to do that is to keep better statistics.
