(West Palm Beach, FL – September 24, 2018) The League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County (LWVPBC) continues its tireless efforts to prepare local voters for the upcoming Midterm Elections with the publication of the 2018 VOTERS’ GUIDE, a 28-page nonpartisan overview of current candidates and ballot issues.
Nearly 125,000 of the Guides are being distributed throughout Palm Beach County, primarily through next Sunday’s issues of The Sun-Sentinel (Boca Raton, Delray Beach) and The Palm Beach Post (Boynton Beach to Jupiter). Copies have also been sent to libraries, government agencies, churches, schools and civic organizations.
“The League’s 2018 VOTERS’ GUIDE provides residents with much of the facts they will need to cast a well-informed vote, including information about the candidates, the Florida constitutional amendments, and the Palm Beach County school referendum,” says LWVPBC President Karen Wilkerson. “Voting is a precious right, and democracy demands an informed electorate.
The 2018 VOTERS’ GUIDE is just one of the League’s pre-election efforts to educate voters, including:
+ The website www.VOTE411.org
+ National Voter Registration Day in 23 local high schools on September 25
+ Hot Topic Luncheons on September 26 (“What’s on the November Ballot?” with Mark Schneider) and October 17 (“Ballot Choices: Property Exemption & Taxes” with PB County Tax Collector Anne Gannon and Tim Wilmath, Chief Appraiser from the Palm Beach County Appraisers’ Office. Each lunch is $25 per person and both will be held at the Atlantis Country Club in Lake Worth. RSVP online at www.lwvpbc.org or by calling 561-968-4123.
