Voter registration coming to libraries on Sept. 27

Sno-Isle Libraries will be doing its part on National Voter Registration Day, Tuesday, Sept. 27, to help eligible residents get registered to vote in time for the Nov. 8 election.

“Sno-Isle Libraries is committed to building connected communities through civic engagement,” said Susan Hempstead, Strategic Relations Manager for the library district. “Our libraries are partnering with the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County to help ensure that everyone has a voice in the electoral process.  The choices we all make by voting matter to our communities.”

The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County is a local branch of the national organization. It is nonpartisan and dedicated to enabling voter registration, organizing candidate and issue forums and encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government.

“We’re very pleased to again be working with Sno-Isle Libraries to help more people become in knowledgeable about and involved with their government,” said Jody Trautwein, League Voter Service Chair.

On Sept. 27, League volunteers will assist with voter registration at nine libraries across the district.
