 LWVHC Launches VOTE411

From the Hendersonville Times-News

Voters in Henderson County and across the state can now prepare for the upcoming midterm elections using a website that allows them to do everything from checking their registration status to reading background information on the issues from the candidates themselves.

The League of Women Voters of Henderson County and North Carolina announced Monday the launch of VOTE411.org, its Voter Guide website. The site is free and easily accessible, and provides nonpartisan information to the state's voters.

Voters can read background information and responses written by the candidates to questions posed by the League. Every candidate on the ballot in North Carolina, from the U.S. House of Representatives to the local register of deeds, was invited and encouraged to participate, according to a Monday release from the League.

"The LWV is committed to 'empowering voters and defending democracy,'" says League of Women Voters of Henderson County Co-President Nan Jennings in the release. "We hope that voters will use this informative site."

Linda Hansma, LWVHC secretary and VOTE411.org chair, added, "Volunteers have spent hundreds of hours reaching out to candidates across the state to urge them to participate. While many candidates jumped right in, some have needed additional encouragement."

Visit VOTE411.org for complete North Carolina voter information. To contact the LWVHC or for more information about the League, visit www.lwvhcnc.org.

 Candidate Forum Questions

The questions, based on topics generated by the League of Women Voters NC and HC and candidates, were written by a small group of local League members following the nonpartisan recommendations provided by the LWVNC and aligned to the questions found on our VOTE411.org voter information website.  Additionally, a nonpartisan, non-LWV community leader reviewed and approved the questions.   The topics—but not the questions—were shared with the candidates and public prior to the Forum.  Due to time constraints all of the questions could not be asked; therefore, the questions were randomly selected.
