'Voter Basics’ Program at Library Saturday

Alameda Reads is presenting a free program on the basics of voting this weekend. Volunteers will help participants register to vote.

From a League of Women Voters of Alameda press release:

The League of Women Voters of Alameda (LWVA) will present voter information and help register potential voters during Alameda Reads’ "Voter Basics" at the program on Saturday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m.

"Voter Basics" will be held in the Stafford Community Meeting Room at the Alameda Free Library, 1550 Oak St. (at Lincoln Avenue).

To celebrate International Literacy Day, Alameda Reads, the adult literacy program of the Alameda Free Library, has invited the LWVA and the Alameda County Registrar of Voters to provide information about voting and help participants register to vote. Participants in the Alameda Reads program, registered voters, prospective voters, and community residents are all welcome at this free, public event.

The main library is wheelchair-accessible and parking is available behind the library building.

Members of the LWVA will facilitate a series of discussions on voter rights and responsibilities, how to find more information about the upcoming election, and what to expect before, during, and after registering and voting. Officials from the Alameda County Registrar of Voters will demonstrate how to use electronic voting machines and also offer voter information.

At 11:30 a.m., Alameda County Registrar of Voters staff and LWVA members will help register prospective voters in a voter registration drive.

The last day to register to vote before the Nov. 6 General Election is Monday, Oct. 22, 15 days prior to the election.
