All eyes are on the upcoming presidential election, but in this week's Politics Ohio we've got more of a local focus. The League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area has several initiatives underway in the next few weeks to help voters get informed. Today we hear from Ana Crawford, Programs Director, with the league to talk about those initiatives.
Upcoming Events provided by LWV:
27 Sep: National Voter Registration Day, 10 am - 8 pm, Dayton Metro Library.
27 Sep: Electoral College panel discussion, 6:00 - 8:00 pm, Wright State Univ. Student Union, Rm 186.
Additional information from the League about voter registration:
Over 32,000 voters in Montgomery and Greene Counties were purged from the voter rolls last year, a process allowed by the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to clear the databases of inactive voters. League partners at the Ohio Unity Coalition set up this easy-to-use web portal where you can verify that you are still registered. If you are not, you will need to (re)register by 11 October to vote in the November general election. You can also check the complete listing of voters purged in your county: Greene or Montgomery (the files are rather large).
