We will also be active on our local VOTE411 voter information service prior to the November 2, 2021 General Election.
And, on Saturday, October 23 from 11 AM to 2 PM, our League will celebrate National Vote Early Day, co-sponsored with the Lawrence Headquarters Branch of Mercer County Library. You can find us out front with tons of information and giveaways. Inside, the Library you can Vote Early, in person, on a machine. Early Voting at the Lawrence Library will continue from October 23 through October 31. Voting hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 AM to 8 PM and Sunday, 10 AM to 6 PM. PLEASE NOTE that if you are a current Vote-by-Mail voter and have not opted out, you may still vote in person by paper provisional ballot at an Early Voting site or on Election Day instead of voting your mail-in ballot.
Lawrence Township Board of Education Candidates Night: Watch HERE
In this November's general election, six candidates are running to fill three seats on the Lawrence Township Board of Education. The field of six includes two incumbents and four challengers. Candidates presented their views and answered questions at a virtual Board of Education Forum on Wednesday October 6, at 7PM. The event is organized by the non-partisan League of Women Voters of Lawrence and was livestreamed via FBpage @LWVLT.org. The public was invited and encouraged to submit questions for the candidates in advance of the forum via LWVofLawrence@gmail.com. The two incumbents are Jo Ann L. Groeger and Kevin Van Hise. Challengers who seek election to the Board are Laura Berger, Falk Engel, Drew Greenspan and Robert Pluta. A preview of the candidates and their positions on Board of Education issues are available at www.Vote411. The website is organized by the League of Women Voters and includes a brief biography of each candidate. For more information, please visit http://www.LWVLT.org or phone 609-301-0401.
Rooted in the century-long movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters has worked to foster civic engagement and enhance access to the vote since our founding in 1920.
Over time our work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters -- particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or under-served communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and voters with disabilities -- have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote.
We welcome women, men, young adults, and teens to join our League.
Dues are $60 per year.
Family membership is $85 per year.
Student membership is free.
Please keep in mind that LWV incurs fees from online payment processing. We are happy to offer this service but please consider donating in other ways to help keep our programs funded.
