May 17, 2020, our Voter Services Team met virtually with Girl Scout Troop 1386 in Sacramento for their “Behind the Ballot Badge”. This badge was developed in 2011 to teach young women about elections and voting. Marge discussed with the Girl Scouts interesting information about the history of voting, what the LWV does, the importance of voting, how to register/pre-register to vote, ways we vote in California, what happens the ballot after it is mailed, and how the troop can help with pre-registering high school students.
