Candidate Forum US Congressional District 6

The League of Women Voters of Western Monmouth County invited area residents to attend a forum for the United States 6th Congressional District on Sunday, October 21st.  Senator Frank Pallone (D) and Candidate Richard Pezzullo (R) agreed to participate in the debate which was held at Temple Rodeph Torah in Marlboro. If you live in the 6th district and weren't able to attend you can watch the full video here and listen to the candidates answer questions about the issues and concerns of their future constituents. The forum was provided to help voters to make informed decisions about the choices they have in the upcoming mid-term election, November 6th. We thank everyone involved for helping to make this valuable forum possible.

Registering New Voters at Howell High School #MyVOTEMyVOICENJ

Congratulations to Howell High School (New Jersey) for another successful Rock the Vote event yesterday. AP Government students guided by their teacher Ms. Stacey Gregorikis partnered with volunteers from the League of Women Voters of Western Monmouth and the volunteers from the Howell Democratic and Republican clubs. 

Voter registration is a non-partisan effort to encourage people to register and get involved in our Democracy. Our 2017 event registered 212 new voters. Yesterday's 2018 event broke that record with 226 new voters registered. Thank you to Vice Principal Michele England for your support!

The Rock the Vote event was part of the joint effort of League of Women Voters of New Jersey and the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association - NJPSA#MyVoiceMyVoteNJ

Students received the banner and wristbands as part of the event. They had some fun taking photos with the wristbands to show how they can amplify their voices when they all vote!

Students were encouraged to download the Monmouth County Votes app while they waited for their turn to register. The app will allow students to follow up on the processing of their registration, find out where to vote and receive reminders to vote.
