On Saturday, September 21, 2019, the League of Women Voters of Diablo Valley will sharpen our 2020 focus on serving voters with a general meeting featuring all things Voter Service. This meeting will run from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Pittsburg Library, 80 Power Avenue in Pittsburg.
Contra Costa County Clerk and Registrar Joe Canciamilla will be our first featured speaker, explaining the County's push for voting by mail that will make it easier for commuters and others to carefully cast their ballots.
This jam-packed program will continue with Marian Shostrom briefly describing Voters Edge, the League's unique online educational service for candidate and issue information. Kay James will describe opportunities to present the Pros & Cons of ballot measures that the League offers to community groups in September and October before general elections. Martha Goralka will give a brief presentation on volunteering as timers and moderators for live and CCTV-taped local candidate roundtables and forums for both primary and general elections. Registration trainer extraordinaire, Renee Zeimer, will conclude with a half-hour voter registration training.
This Fall League Kick-Off meeting is one you won’t want to miss as our primary and general election season heats up. National Day of Registration is on September 24th, so you’ll be ready to head out the door to register others to vote either by mail or at a local polling place.
