It’s fall! Time for leaves, pumpkin everything, and elections.
The League of Women Voters Westport “leaves” raking to you, and pumpkin lattes to Starbucks. But it’s all over the ballot box.
As the non-partisan, men-are-welcome-too organization prepares for Tuesday, November 5, they offer several programs and services to help Westporters register, and learn about candidates. For example:
Tomorrow (September 24) is National Voter Registration Day. You can register at the Westport Library (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
October 6 is the LWV’s annual Fall Brunch (11 am to 1 p.m.). It’s a meet-the-candidates event. For more information or to RSVP, call 203-293-7687.
On October 21 (Town Hall, 7 p.m.), the LWV co-sponsors debates with the Westport Library and PTA Council, for Board of Finance and Board of Education candidates. Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org (specify which office you are asking about).
On October 28 (Town Hall, 7 p.m.) there’s a second debate, for Board of Assessment Appeals, Planning and Zoning Commission, and Zoning Board of Appeals candidates.
Of course, Election Day would not be complete without the LWV Voter’s Guide. It will arrive in the mail of all 10,500 Westport households shortly after October 25.
The League seeks donations to help defray the $3,900 cost of printing and mailing this important tool. Checks can be sent to the League of Women Voters of Westport, PO Box 285, Westport, CT 06881-0285 (write “Voter’s Guide” in the memo line.
