League of Women Voters Encourages Engagement, Voting in Upcoming Election

To the Editor:

Candidates for the Princeton Board of Education will meet in a virtual forum on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 p.m. Send questions for the candidates to lwvprinceton@gmail.com by October 10.

The forum will be broadcast live on Central New Jersey Network or CNJN Comcast Channel 30 and Verizon Channel 45 and on Facebook.com/cnjntv and its YouTube page. It will be streamed on CNJN.org and on its streaming platforms: Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV.

Video of the forum will be posted on the League of Women Voters’ website, lwvprinceton.org, and at VOTE411.org. The forum will be rebroadcast on CNJN.

To read about the platforms of these candidates as well as others, visit VOTE411.org. Go to VOTE411 or the NJ Voter Info Portal to find specific information about early voting, vote-by-mail, polling and drop box locations, as well as hours and deadlines. The deadline to register is October 18.

The League of Women Voters encourages civic engagement. Board (poll) workers are needed for the nine days of early voting and on November 8. Students aged 16-17 may work half-days, and all board workers are compensated: $300 on Election Day and $21.43/hour during early voting, plus $30 for attending training. Contact your county board of elections or visit the New Jersey Voter Info Portal for an application. Students should ask whether a special student application is required.

Vote early, by mail, or on Election Day — but please VOTE!
