From libraries to the Aging and Disability Resource Center, the League of Women Voters Door County is making sure any potential voter in need of help registering to vote gets it. Over 30 states require some kind of documentation to vote, including six with strict photo identification laws like Wisconsin’s according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The LWV’s voter service co-chairperson Barbara Graul says upcoming registration events help make sure everyone who wants to vote can.
The League of Women Voters Door County will host registration assistance events throughout September and into October. You can learn more about those events and the first of three candidate forums occurring this week online with this story.
