The Door County League of Women Voters major activity in the New Year will be hosting candidate forums for those running for local offices. To help young people understand their new voting rights, the League members send birthday cards to residents turning 18 to encourage and instruct in registration as well as educate high school and college students on the election process and law. Shirley Senarighi, co-President of the League of Women’s Voters of Door County, says that a major activity going into the new year is conducting candidate forums which require many inputs and resources.
Senarighi indicates that they have had a lot of positive feedback from the candidate forums as they are made available online and on local access channels, providing an opportunity for those who cannot attend to learn about local issues and candidate positions. The League of Women Voters of Door County is a volunteer organization with their activities supported solely with membership fees and contributions. Senarighi encourages everyone to sign up for their newsletter and stay aware of upcoming forums and events as elections unfold in the spring.
