Voter Service Committee


The Voter Services Committee goal is educating voters to make informed decisions in all elections. All activities for candidates are non-partisan. We organize candidates forums and hold local ballot issues meetings. We have taken league positions at Issues meetings concerning Fair Elections, Charter Schools, but not on the Hudson's Downtown Phase II initiative), We produce voting websites and Voters Guides.

Objectives:
  • Identifies local issues, election cycles, primary and general, to provide education to the public for informed voting
  • Plans, coordinates and executes public candidate forums & other informative meetings which are non-partisan
  • Solicits candidates and publishes issues for vote411.org voter guide for both an electronic and physical Voter Guide.
  • Publicize our public issues and forums


Accomplishments:
  • Solicited candidates to provide information for LWVUS vote411.org for all election cycles since 2015.
  • Held a Candidates Forum for the 2020 primary election in conjunction with LWVAA.
  • 2019-20 election cycle voter guides were completed with Akron Beacon Journal support and publication.
  • Held a Candidates Forum for the 2020 general election at the Barlow Farm Barn, which was videotaped for viewing on HCTV. (Covid-19 pandemic prevented a live audience.)
  • Created a print version of the Summit County Voter Guide (from vote411.org website) for the 2020 general election, in collaboration with LWVAA, in order to educate voters for Early Voting.
  • Voter information postcards were mailed to northern Summit County residents.

Further Advocacy by Committee:
  • SB 191 by Gavaronne (R), Roegner (R) online absentee ballot requests, seems to be a priority for LaRose, but has not gone forward sent last September
  • SB 194 by Rulli (R); Require BOEs to only use approved registration vendors. Passed unanimously out of the Senate, but hasn’t moved in the House. Wasn’t a high priority pre-pandemic
