Making Democracy Work

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Vote411 -- the online candidate forums

This November we hope to make our online candidate forums available to all the municipalities that are holding elections. In Pickens County, Central, Easley, Liberty, Norris, Pickens and Sex Mile are holding elections. In Anderson County, Belton, Honea Path, Iva, Pelzer, Pendleton and West Pelzer are holding elections. In Oconee County,

Alice Flower (Anderson County), Kathy Bargeron (Oconee County) and Eleanor Hare (Pickens County) are collecting candidate information and entering it in the computer. Invitations to participate are being sent to candidates by email. Letters will be mailed to those who do not reply.

We need volunteers in two areas: (1) to phone candidates who do not reply and (2) to take Vote411 flyers and business cards to each council having an election.

This outreach, to the edges of our three counties, is a huge task, but it is a major benefit to voters. If we can reach all these elections, candidate participation in future candidate forums should increase. Contact any of the county co-ordinators if you can help.
