SAVE THE DATES!!

Once again the Fort Wayne League of Women Voters is partnering with the Allen County Bar Foundation, the Allen County Public Library, and the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics to offer this terrific 6 session class on the constitution:

CONSTITUTION 101

September 26, October 3, October 10,
October 17
, October 24, October 31


This is an adult version of the popular We the People program. The class will meet on the above six consecutive Wednesdays from 6:30 – 8:30 P.M. in the downtown Allen County Public Library. The cost is $50, which includes the comprehensive We the People text, a notebook and handouts. Robert Leming, Director of the National We the People Program, is the Instructor. He will share his expertise on the Constitution while also engaging participants in thoughtful discussion. Registration information is here.
This event made the newspaper!  The Journal Gazette's Political Notebook featured this course in an article in early August.  Read it here.

In late August, WANE-TV, our CBS affiliate, conducted an interview with Bob Leming, the National Director of the "We the People" program (who came up from Indy) along with Jim Fenton, atty from the Allen County Bar Foundation. We also included 7 former class participants (Barb Duch was one of them).

It will be aired twice on WANE-TV on September 20.
First on the morning newscast around 6:10-6:15 am and then again around 11:10-11:15 pm. It will also be put on their website.
WANE-TV is channel 15.  Stay tuned for more details!

Upcoming Events: Voting! 

VOTE411.ORG AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR INDIANA CANDIDATE INFORMATION

            VOTE411.ORG is a “one-stop-shop” for election information. This innovative resource, a free service of the League of Women Voters, provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information. In Indiana you can enter your home address to see ballot questions as well as candidate responses to League questions. This includes the candidates entered in the May 8th Primary for the U.S. Senate.

            Using VOTE411.ORG voters can also confirm a polling location, check to see if ID is required, and see what their personal ballot will look like. Confirming this information before heading to the polls saves voters time and helps them make more informed decisions. Another important opportunity provided by VOTE411.ORG is the ability to register to vote. NOTE: April 9, 2018, was the deadline to register for the May Primary. Registration is ongoing until 29 days before the November 6th General Election.

            A variety of topics can also be researched on VOTE411.ORG including the process for absentee voting, voting online, becoming a poll worker and early voting. Simply select a category, enter Indiana and details will be provided, as available.
