League of Women Voters updating guide
ESCANABA — The League of Women Voters of Delta County is currently updating its online Voter Guide – Vote411. This service is a free, non-partisan, voter education resource that can be found at www.vote411.org. It was created to provide a personalized voting guide that includes up-to-date information the voter needs to cast his/her ballot, including who is on the ballot, information about voting early or absentee and what types of identification, if any, you will need. This information will soon be available for voting in the Primary Election on August 4, 2020.
On May 21 the candidates in the following local races were invited to participate in the upcoming Voter Guide – Vote411.
Delta County – sheriff, prosecutor, clerk, treasurer, road commission, land surveyor, county commissioners – districts 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
Baldwin Township – supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee
Bark River Township – supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee
Bay de Noc Township – supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee
Brampton Township – supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee
Cornell Township – clerk, treasurer, trustee
Ensign Township – supervisor, clerk, treasurer, trustee
Fairbanks Township – clerk, treasurer
Ford River Township – clerk, treasurer
Garden Township – clerk, treasurer, trustee
Masonville Township – clerk, treasurer, trustee
Nahma Township – trustee

Each candidate was sent a set of questions regarding the position he/she is seeking, with the hope they accept the opportunity to share their views with voters. After the response deadline, the on-line Voter Guide will be published on Vote411.org.
The League invites write-in candidates to notify them, if they would like to participate in the on-line Voter Guide or potential candidate forums.
Information about absentee ballots or registering to vote can be found on the Michigan Secretary of State website www.michigan.gov/vote. The passage of the Promote the Vote ballot proposal in November 2018, allows Michigan voters to use a no reason absentee ballot to vote early, or up to 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters may register to vote by mail or in person, including on Election Day.
The League is a non-partisan political organization that has worked since the early years of the last century to encourage informed and active participation in government. The organization works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes candidates or political parties.
