The League of Women Voters of Kootenai County invites residents to register Tuesday, Sept. 28 — National Voters Registration Day.
Volunteers will be at the Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, and Post Falls libraries from 1 to 7 p.m. that day to help get Kootenai County signed up to participate in the November election.
The LWVKC is a nonpartisan organization that strives to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government.
“Voting in the Nov. 2 nonpartisan election is more important than ever as many are running for mayoral, city council, school board and fire district positions,” an LWVKC release said.
Voters must register by 5 p.m. Oct. 8 to participate in the election. Virtual registration is available at voteidaho.gov.
Same-day registration and voting are available on Election Day at your polling place. The LWVKC intends to boost local involvement through Vote411.org — a free, nonpartisan resource that includes candidate information and questionnaire responses.
Individuals running for office this fall can contact the LWVKC to participate in Vote411.org at LisaSchaff1@hotmail. com. The Press and LWVKC are partnering to collect candidate questionnaires and contact information ahead of the election. Candidates should contact Press reporter Madison Hardy for a candidate questionnaire and elections coverage. Email mhardy@cdapress. com or call 208-416-5109.
