The printed version of the Voters Guide
Thank you to The Morning Call for continuing support of our non-partisan, twice-yearly Voters Guide.
This fall, candidates input their responses into VOTE411’s online questionnaire for the Voters’ Guide for General Election 2018. The questions were non-partisan. We received all of that data in a document. Then, we reviewed the answers and information shared by each candidate for accuracy. Then, we sent them to the Morning Call for publication. This is the version that is posted at the top of this page.
The newspaper always gives us a generous number of extra copies to distribute around the county. If you are new to this, this involves a counting party at which we make bundles of varying numbers and mark them for delivery to libraries, community centers, social agencies, and various other places where voters can picked them up. On October 25, Pat and Burke Swan once again offered their home for us to do this. This was the same day as the guide was published. Volunteers arrived at 10:30 am or arranged to pick up copies later in the day. We finished about noon, then departed to make our deliveries.
Looking ahead, as the 2019 Municipal Primary Election is Tuesday, May 14, 2019, the Voters Guide should be published on Thursday, May 2, 2019. Members, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can come to help or distribute copies of the Voters Guide. Thank you.
