League of Women Voters of Northern Valley Provides Nonpartisan Voter Education Toolkit, VOTE411, Ahead of General Election

(BERGEN COUNTY, NJ) -- The League of Women Voters of Northern Valley (LWVNV) wants citizens to be informed to participate in New Jersey's General Election on November 8.  The League is working to ensure voters find accurate, nonpartisan election information on the voting resource site, VOTE411.org.

The League of Women Voters of Northern Valley encourages voters to visit the site early.  They can access the voter guide for their community on VOTE411.org and make a voting plan to cast their vote in the General Election on November 8.  The voter guide presents responses from candidates running for municipal offices and the U.S. House of Representatives. 

"Voters in the region need to educate themselves about the voting process and exercise their right to vote.  From local to state races, it is crucial voters in the LWVNV's 29 municipalities make their voices heard in the next election,” said Joyce Luhrs, Vice President, League of Women Voters of Northern Valley.  “VOTE411.org is a nonpartisan, one-stop shop resource providing the electorate with the resources they need to make an informed vote this fall.”

Each year, VOTE411 helps voters nationwide, including young adults and first-time voters, find a range of information about voting and elections.  This hands-on, accessible site provides a voter's registration status, poll locations and times, information about state and local races, candidates' positions, registration deadlines, voter eligibility requirements, and more.

Register to Vote: In New Jersey, eligible voters may register to vote online, by mail or in person at the County Clerk's Office.  The voter registration deadline to vote in the November 8 election is Tuesday, October 18.  If a voter is already registered to vote, they should check if their status is correct and active.  A voter should reregister if they move, change their name, or completed a sentence of incarceration.  People on parole or probation may register to vote in New Jersey. Voter registration information may be found on VOTE411.org.



 





The League of Women Voters of Northern Valley, a chapter of the League of Women Voters (LWV), is a non-partisan, grassroots civic organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.  The LWV was an outgrowth of the 19th Amendment passed in 1920 giving women the right to vote.  Today, the LWV operates at the state and local levels through more than 700 state and local Leagues in all 50 states and in Washington D.C., the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.

The League of Women Voters of Northern Valley was founded in 1946 as the League of Women Voters of Closter.  By 1964, it included 11 municipalities in the Northern Valley and was renamed the League of Women Voters of Northern Valley.  Today, the chapter serves 29 municipalities -- Alpine, Bergenfield, Cliffside Park, Closter, Cresskill, Demarest, Dumont, Edgewater, Emerson, Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Harrington Park, Haworth, Hillsdale, Leonia, Montvale, New Milford, Northvale, Norwood, Old Tappan, Park Ridge, River Vale, Rockleigh, Tenafly, Washington Township, Westwood, and Woodcliff Lake. 

The organization develops grassroots leadership and achieves widespread credibility because it is strictly nonpartisan.  Throughout the year, a range of voters services and programs are provided, including candidates’ forums, registration drives, dissemination of nonpartisan information about candidates and issues, and public meetings to discuss current issues.
