League of Women Voters to hold voters registration drive

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote, because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register.

In 2013, the Jefferson County League of Women Voters wants to make sure no one is left out.

On Sept. 24, volunteers, celebrities and organizations from across the country will “hit the streets” for National Voter Registration Day.

In Jefferson County, the League of Women Voters is again joining the effort by registering voters at the Shenandoah Community Health Center, and at Shepherd University’s Scarborough Library and the dining hall on campus. More registration sites will be opened  when more volunteers sign up.

The league is a nonpartisan organization open to men and women interested in promoting good government through education and advocacy.

For information about joining the Jefferson County League, send an email to anncoulter@comcast.net or go to  http://civicwomen.wordpress.com.

To help register voters, call Carolyn Watson at 304-725-8049 or send an email to libladyuw@yahoo.com.
