Event description

Description

Ohio’s voter registration system is woefully out of date and inefficient, and Ohio has major gaps in electoral participation among low-income, youth, and voters of color. Ohio’s “supplemental process” of purging infrequent voters from the rolls exacerbates the issue. Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) can actually make our rolls more accurate and secure, while also closing voter registration gaps and creating government efficiencies. The League needs to be a leader in this advocacy, and LWVO is searching for local League members who will help lead our advocacy and grassroots efforts on AVR.

LWVO Executive Director, Jen Miller will be conducting a training on Automatic Voter Registration and Advocacy hosted by the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus. We would love to see at least representatives from each of the local Leagues in Central Ohio region attend. Below is the training information. SPACE IS LIMITED! Please RSVP.


WHEN: October 24, 2019, 6 to 9 PM

WHERE: 645 Niel Avenue, Columbus OH 43215 (Room to TBA)

OTHER: A light dinner: sandwiches, chips, and cookies plus beverages (coffee and iced tea).. Cash/check donations are welcome at the event to help cover costs.
