BREAKING NEWS - CALL TO ACTION - 2020 CENSUS

The deadline for the 2020 Census is September 30 and many of our Massachusetts communities continue to have low response rates.  You can help by participating in phone banks sponsored by MassCounts.  LWVMA will be hosting the Phone bank on Wednesday, September 23, 5 to 7 pm. You can sign up at https://actionnetwork.org/events/census-phone-bank-with-congresswoman-trahan-september-23-pm.

VOTER REGISTRATION:

September is the best time to register to vote at your current address, or to make sure your voter registration is up to date. You must be registered by October 24 to be able to vote in the November 3 general election. You can register to vote online (www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr), register by mail or register in-person via drop-off form (see www.winchester.us  and VOTE411.org for more info). For high schoolers, check out High School Voter Registration Week from Sept. 21 to 25 and for everyone else, National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 22.


VOTING PLAN:

Once you are registered or updated your registration, make a Voting Plan. Do you know where your polling place is? Are you planning to vote by mail? If so, did you already request a mail-in ballot application or do you need to request one now? Do you know you can bring your mail-in ballot to a Drop Box instead of mailing it?  Do you know where your town’s Drop Boxes are located? Will you vote in person on Election Day (Nov. 3) or during the early voting period (Oct. 17-30)? Are you familiar with the candidates and ballot questions that are on the ballot?


RESOURCES: Answers to all of these questions can be found at www.lwvwinchester.org, VOTE411.org, the Massachusetts Secretary of State (https://www.sec.state.ma.us) or Winchester’s Town Clerk (www.winchester.us; click “Vote” button). For residents of nearby towns, visit:
