We enthusiastically endorse Bruce Berlin’s letter to The Tribune (Sept. 19, “Be heard, cast ballot”) urging citizens to become involved, to study the candidates and the issues, and to cast an informed vote. We want to assure Berlin and our community at large that the League of Women Voters is currently conducting candidate forums and other voter service activities throughout the county. Our forums and “Pros & Cons” presentations give voters an opportunity to hear the candidates and ask them questions and to learn about the propositions on the Nov. 4 election ballot.
We will moderate a forum for San Luis Obispo City Council and mayoral candidates on Thursday. On Sept. 30, we’ll be in Templeton for a Community Services District candidate forum, and in October we’re moderating forums for the Paso Robles School Board and Paso Robles City Council races. And there are more.
To find out about all the voter service activities on the League’s agenda, go to our website http://www.lwvslo.org. If you would like to work with the League to sponsor a forum, contact us at 782-4040 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another reminder, today is National Voter Registration Day. If you have moved, you need to register at your new address. To register to vote, pick up a voter registration form at the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder’s Office at the County Government Center or your local public library. You can also register online at www.registertovote.ca.gov .
