Voter registration downtown during RNC:

League members and friends, 

Are you feeling adventurous, curious, public-spirited? Join us in helping those taking a stand in the street to take their cause to the voting booth.

The League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland will be registering voters downtown next week during the Republican National Convention. 

When: July 18 – 21, 2016, 10 am to 8 pm
Location: Willard Park (northwest corner of East 9th Street and Lakeside Avenue – near the Claes Oldenburg Free Stamp sculpture)

To volunteer, contact: lwvgreatercleveland@gmail.com

Sign up for one or more overlapping four-hour shifts for each day: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm; 1:00 – 5:00 pm; 4:00 – 8:00 pm (Last shift will remove literature, table, chairs to staging area).
We hope to have four volunteers for each shift, but volunteers are especially needed within the hours of 4:00 to 8:00 pm. 

The League does not support or endorse candidates or parties. Anyone who volunteers must do so without promoting any particular candidate or party.

In addition to voter registration, information about candidate forums and public forums scheduled late summer into the fall will be distributed.


 

Verify and update your voter registration!
