City Council Candidate Forum
October’s biggest event for Voter Service was the City Council Candidate Forum held October 17 at Northside Middle School. Thirteen of the fifteen candidates were in attendance, and they answered questions on everything from how they will handle transparency in government to how they will deal with the potholes that plague neighborhood streets. The live broadcast and Facebook livestream/rebroadcast by WLBC and Steve Lindell helped make sure those who could not make it to the Forum were able to access the information from the candidates from home or at a later date.
NAACP sponsored Mayoral Event
In addition to the Forum, Voter Service also staffed a table at the NAACP sponsored Mayoral Candidate Forum on October 3 at the Church of the Living God, registered voters at the Activist Fair on the Ball State University campus October 11, and staffed a table at the October Lunchtime Opportunity Tables event at Muncie Central High School on October 22.
Muncie Central Opportunity Tables
We staffed a table on October 22nd to introduce the students to the League of Women Voters, explaining how we began, what we do to defend our democracy, what we need help with right now, and inviting students to join us for only $5.00 thanks to the scholarship from the LWV of Indiana. Many students were receptive to the information, some appeared quite interested to join us, and a few took flyers home to their families.
If your club or group would like to know more about the LWV of Muncie/Delaware County please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a speaker or staffed table at your event.
