(Increased Voter Participation)…The County is making an effort.
The County Board of Supervisors appointed an Elections Ad Hoc Committee in July. The committee was to develop ways to attract more voters to the polls this November. This week the Board received an update on the committee’s progress. The Ad Hoc Committee has met three times since it was formed. They have updated the Elections Department website. The Mobile Voting Office will be available around the County this month. The stipend for poll workers has increased. School presentations on the importance of registering to vote were held recently. The Registrar of Voters Debra Porter says the efforts have paid off with increased voter registration.
