Who are our elected representatives? How can I contact an elected official? How to register to vote? ...and more
Launched by the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) in October of 2006, VOTE411.org is a "one-stop-shop" for election related information. It provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information on the following aspects of the election process:
Absentee ballot information
Ballot measure information (where applicable)
Early voting options (where applicable)
Factual data on candidates in various federal, state and local races
General information on such topics as how to watch debates with a critical eye
Polling place locations
Voter registration forms
An important component of VOTE411.org is the polling place locator, which enables users to type in their address and retrieve the poll location for the voting precinct in which that address is located. The League has found that this is among the most sought after information in the immediate days leading up to, and on, Election Day.
The Wichita Eagle also has published a Voter Guide:
ABOUT THE VOTER GUIDE The Wichita Eagle invited candidates in key area races to respond to questions about issues. You can compare the candidates and their responses side by side, and create your own printable or e-mailable ballot. The responses are largely unedited and presented as the candidates sent them to us.
You can use the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print this file. If it is not currently installed on your computer, a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader is downloadable from Adobe.
Print "Things to Know about Your Government" and keep it by your phone so you can contact your government officials on issues of current concern. Remember, they work for you.
