League in the News
The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties Voter Service team and our dedicated members had significant election year accomplishments in 2016. Their work began in February and continued through October.
Voter Service Chair Vicki Harimon reports that our League conducted 6 Voter Registration Drives. One of these voter registration drives was a cooperative effort with the American Association of University Women, as was creating and distributing Your Vote Counts voter information cards to voters. Our League conducted voter registration and ballot issues presentation training for members, hosted 20 Ballot Issue Speaks, presented a public Ballot Issues forum, and fulfilled one request for voting assistance. We provided voters with candidate and ballot issue information based on their address via the Vote411.org web site. Members also distributed thousands of League of Women Voters of Colorado Ballot Issues pamphlets in English and Spanish throughout Arapahoe and Douglas counties.
Thanks to our outstanding members for making these contributions to the community possible.
