Voting 101

Wednesday, February 5th, 4pm-6pm

Library Second Floor

Stop by the library to register to vote, change your registration, or check that you’re registered to vote at the right place.  But registering to vote is only the first step, so don’t stop there!  Volunteers will help you learn how to look up your ballot, find your voting location, and request an absentee ballot if needed.  They will show you how to research the individuals and issues on your ballot so you can make informed decisions and feel confident on Election Day.  There will also be a voting machine so you can see how they work!  The League of Women Voters, staff from the Franklin County Board of Elections, library staff, and students from Raise Your Voice will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. #INST approved
