A release from the League of Women Voters of Bucks County
Voters can now visit VOTE411.org, provide their home address and see the races on their Municipal Primary ballot. In time for the May 21 Municipal Primary, the VOTE411.org website is ready for voters to find a lot of useful information, including information which has been provided by candidates themselves.
Three hundred sixty-five candidates for 165 races in Bucks County were contacted with the aid of volunteers from the League of Women Voters of Bucks County (LWVBC) and invited to submit biographical information and answers to questions pertinent to the new positions they are seeking. Among other important voter services, VOTE411.org allows voters to compare candidates side-by-side, confirm their polling location and save a ballot with their choices for Election Day convenience. For a personalized ballot, visitors to the website should simply enter their home street address and party affiliation; no apartment numbers and zip code extensions are needed. When reviewing information about the candidates, scroll down completely to see all the content provided by candidates. League of Women Voters is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government. VOTE411.org is made possible by the League of Women Voters Education Fund.
The Voters’ Guide has been a service of LWVBC for over sixty years, along with many other services to inform and support voters.
