Online Guide Features Local Candidates

Voters across the state can find information about the candidates on their ballots by visiting www.VOTE411.org.
The League of Women Voters of Washington has added local information to VOTE411.org to serve as a resource for all voters. The guide provides simple tools to help people navigate the voting process this November.

“Just key in your address and your candidate information follows,” said Linnea Hirst, LWVWA co- president. “This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime, and each of us has a role to play. Learning about our candidates and ballot issues is a good start.”

Nationally, in 2008, approximately 20 million voters found the information they needed through VOTE411.org, many of them young people and first-time voters.

“VOTE411.org is convenient, easy and empowering,” concluded Hirst. “I’ll be sharing it with my friends and family to help them prepare for Election Day. We hope you will, too.”
