Richmond – The League of Women Voters has created an online Voter’s Guide for the November elections at www.VOTE411.org. You simply go to the site, enter your address, and the races that will appear on your ballot are shown. You can compare candidates, mark your choices, and print and email your results to take with you to the polls.
Detailed candidate information is available for President, US Senate and House of Representatives (Districts 3, 4 and 7) Richmond Mayor, City Council and School Board. The candidates’ answers to questions posed by the League are posted for all candidates who responded. The two VA constitutional amendments are also included.
Nationally, in 2008, approximately 20 million voters found the information they needed through VOTE411.org, many of them young people and first-time voters. For detailed information not found on Vote411, go to Virginia State Board of Elections at www.sbe.va.
The League of Women Voters hopes that citizens will find this information helpful as they prepare to vote in November. The League has supported informed and active participation of citizens in government since its founding in 1920. The League is a non-partisan political organization and never supports or opposes individual political parties or candidates.
