Registering people to vote is our 'thing' - Help Register Voters

The League is known for its voter service and registration drives. In September, Leagues across the country are participating in the annual National Voter Registration Day. The events sharpen our skills and remind us of voter requirements.

Test your memory with registration details and support the new Registrar of Voters, Lynda Roberts from the Marin Elections Department. The department will host a week-long event that focuses on short bursts of time at multiple locations. If you have a few hours to staff a table from Sept 20 - 25 at locations such as early-evening farmers markets, Sunday afternoon in Corte Madera and many others, contact Veda Flores at vedaart9@gmail.com to sign up!

Veda challenges every member of the Marin League to find one person to register to vote. Pick up a Voter Registration card in the office and carry it with you. Think of the potential. One new registration per member could yield 200 new registered voters. Take the challenge and register one person by Sept 23rd.
