League of Women Voters Beaufort kicks off REV It Up

From staff reports

Registering to vote, educating voters with accurate information and ensuring voting is accessible to all eligible voters is more important now than ever, and appropriately the League of Women Voters Beaufort has announced the kick-off of their REV It Up campaign for another election season utilizing the National VOTE411.org website.

When potential voters visit VOTE411.org, they can just click on their state, and when they register to vote or give their address, they will receive the information they need for their county, district and precinct.

The League also invites citizens to use and share their new QR (Quick Response) code, either with this story or on their website – lwvbeaufort.org – to register and help others to register, find your polling place, candidates, issues and more. Visitors to this site can find answers to their election questions for all 50 states.

The nonprofit, nonpartisan League of Women Voters Beaufort is a source of credible voter information and civic education in Beaufort County and the group is publicizing VOTE411.org because it is an effective tool for all who want to be informed.

“The goal is for every eligible person to be empowered, to be informed, to be registered and to vote, LWVB said in a statement. “Not voting is giving up your voice. Please don’t let others decide your future.

“LWVB is excited about VOTE411.org because it not only gives easy access to all of the information you need to be an informed voter, it also allows you to do everything necessary to register to vote from your home. And to receive an absentee ballot if you’re eligible. (We) are hoping you will use this excellent tool and encourage your friends to do so too.”

Business or non-partisan organizations interested in getting involved as a partner in the community to share the LWVB’s mission should email the League at lwvbeaufort@gmail.com.

The LWVB invites all to attend its monthly meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. in the meeting room at Sea Island Presbyterian Church at 81 Lady’s Island Drive. You need not be a member to attend.

The Thursday, April 14 meeting will provide a legislative update and discuss how citizens can be an agent to increase voter participation.
