League of Women Voters SLOCO Lunch with The League Series

Election 2020

Each Monday through November 9th we will hold webinars on Election 2020 topics which will help voters understand the changes in the election process this year. We'll have different topics every week, timed to match what's going on in the election.

Voter Service Chair Julie Rodewald will host the series, and we will have other guests who are expert in the election process. Participate in Q&A to get your questions answered.

We want you to be ready to make your vote count!

Drive-thru voter registration
Event Date: 
Oct 10 2020 - 10:00am
Event location: 

West Chicago Public Library

Are you registered to vote at your current address? Do you have questions about the 2020 voting process?

We are committed to ensuring that all voters are able to safely and securely cast their ballot during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to support individuals and community partners who are also committed to this work! New strategies are needed to register voters and get out the vote in 2020, because in-person registration events and candidate forums are much more difficult. 

We are developing an array of resources to inform and mobilize voters for the 2020 elections,
including virtual candidates forums and this Get-Out-the Vote toolkit.
