VOTE411.org launched for election info


The League of Women Voters of Clackamas County has launched the nonpartisan election resource VOTE411.org.

This “one-stop shop” for election information provides simple tools to help Oregon voters navigate the voting process this November. VOTE411.org provides candidate information, voter registration tools, polling place locations and other helpful election day information.

Detailed candidate information, including candidates’ responses to questions, is available for the presidential candidates as well as candidates for Clackamas County Board of Commissioners and for various state elected offices, among others.

“As voters, we need simple, helpful tools to help us navigate election day,” said Luana Luther, president of Clackamas County League of Women Voters. “This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime, and each one of us has an important role to play in weighing in on the issues and priorities that matter most for our community. VOTE411.org is the nation’s premiere online election resource and the League of Women Voters of Clackamas County has added our county’s information to VOTE411.org so that it can serve as a resource for all Clackamas County voters.”

VOTE411.org also provides “unbiased” explanations of each of the nine state ballot measures. In addition, the league has scheduled various meetings around the county to present unbiased ballot measure information.

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,” said league member Libby Medley of Sandy. “I’ll be sharing it with my friends and family to help them prepare for Election Day, and we know many others will, too.”
