League of Women Voters Announces Forum; Encourages Civic Engagement

To the Editor:

The three Democratic candidates running for New Jersey Assembly in Legislative District 16 will meet in a virtual forum on Thursday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. To view the webinar live, register at TheMontyNews.com. Questions for the candidates may be emailed to the League of Women Voters at lwvprinceton@gmail.com by April 30. A recording of the forum will be posted at VOTE411.org and at lwvprinceton.org and will be rebroadcast by Princeton Community TV. See lwvprinceton.org for up-to-date information and broadcast times.

The deadline to register for the June 8 Primary Election is May 18. Voters may apply for a Mail-In Ballot by mail up to seven days prior to the election. Please note: citizens who are on parole or probation may now vote, but they must register or re-register if they had registered before incarceration.

The League of Women Voters encourages civic engagement. Board (poll) workers are needed for the Primary Election and for the General Election, when early voting will require many more board workers. Students aged 16-17 may work half-days if their parents and school give permission. Shifts are 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 8:15 p.m., with a 30-minute break and compensation of $100. Students aged 18 and adults registered to vote may work half-days 5:15a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 8:15 p.m. at $100 with no break or full days at $200 with an hour break. Contact your county board of elections for an application. Students should ask whether a special student application is required.
