We’ve heard from eight local Leagues that they’re interested in using VOTE411.org to create a Voters’ Guide for their town’s spring 2016 elections. If your League would like to use this resource for spring 2016 elections, we need to hear from you before Wednesday, Dec. 23. Please contact Mary Ann Ashton, LWVMA Voter Service Chair, or Meryl Kessler, LWVMA Executive Director. For more information about using VOTE411.org for spring 2016 elections, review the Frequently Asked Questions.
VOTE411.org access will begin in January, and we want to be sure that we’re prepared for the needs of local Leagues. This valuable resource is available at NO COST to local Leagues thanks to a generous donor among our members and a grant from the Filene Foundation.
The state League will be using VOTE411.org to create a Voters’ Guide for the fall 2016 elections.
VOTE411.org is a customizable digital resource developed by the national League of Women Voters (LWVUS) that will allow Massachusetts voters to access personalized ballot information – for statewide races, state legislative races, and U.S. Congressional races – simply by entering a street address. Voters will also be able to access in-depth information about candidates (including candidates’ responses to questions created by LWVMA) and ballot measures, an online voter registration tool, local and state voting requirements and rules, a polling place finder, and videos of candidate debates.
