Our League Wraps Up: What We've Done Since August


League Members were busy during the months of August through October registering, and reaching out to voters to educate them about the November 4th elections.  The following activities and events occurred during this period: 

Voter registration  at NOVA: Sept. 2, 3, 11th, 17, 29, 30, Oct. 1.  We registered more than 200 people at both NOVA campuses. 

Voter Registration at Libraries: Sept. 10, 17, 24, Oct. 1, 7

Voter Education and Registration: August 2nd at the African American Heritage Festival; September 21st at the Latino Festival in Manassas; and October 4th at the Manassas Fall Festival. 

A Voting Rights and Restoration of Felons' Rights Forum in partnership with the AKA Sorority was held at the Kelly Leadership Center on September 13th.   Carol Noggle gave a presentation on League activities and provided voter education materials.  Below is a table which shows material from various groups that participated. 

September 23rd was National Registration Day.  League members passed out voter materials at three VRE stations. 

On September 25th,  the Reentry Council conducted its Adult Detention Center Community Resource Fair at the Detention Center in Manassas.  League members  attended  and provided information on Absentee voting, and Restoration of Rights.  Many of the inmates were not aware that their voting rights could be restored.  

On October 13th, the LWV-VA/AARP sponsored a Senate Debate in Richmond.  Karen Kaiser, Barbara Kreykenbohm, and Carol Noggle attended.

There were a number of Meet and Greet candidate forums held.  The LWV-PWA assisted LWV Fairfax and AARP on these forums.  Brenda Carswell organized the 11th District Meet and Greet held at Westminster on October 14th.

Voter Education Guide:  Our LWV-PWA Voter Guide was published in the Prince William Today newspaper  in online and hard copy. It included Congressional candidates and candidates for Manassas City Council and Manassas Park City Council.

Top Ten Election Cards: We distributed 2000 Top Ten Election Information Cards at many venues.

Photo ID materials: A late change was made to the requirements for photo IDs resulting in the League having to affix at least 3000 correction stickers to handouts about the new voter Photo ID rules.  League members spent many hours printing out labels with the correct information and placing them on cards and flyers for distribution to the NOVA campus, libraries, churches, and fall events.  

Awards:  Chris Lee was presented with the Top Ten award for her efforts to encourage the students to register. She gave our Top Ten cards to dozens of students at the NOVA Manassas Campus as an incentive to each individual to register and vote. Jane Maddocks got the "Sticker" award for applying hundreds and hundreds of stickers to Photo ID awareness cards.

Other members who added hundreds of stickers to the Photo ID cards and flyers were Brenda Carswell and Diane Riffer. 

Join Us! 

We are always looking for new members, so please share all the wonderful work our League is doing to make our Democracy work with your friends and acquaintances.  Ask them to join us so that we can become an even stronger and more effective League.  Have them visit our site at http://www.lwvpwamal.org/p/who-we-are.html for a sign-up form.
