Bucks League of Women Voters host voter registration events

The League of Women Voters of Bucks County will participate in National Voter Registration Day, a nationwide, nonpartisan effort now in its seventh year, to register thousands of voters on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

League volunteers will be at the Pipersville Free Library, Bucks County Free Library in Doylestown and Warminster Township Free Library on Sept. 25 to assist voters who want to register or update their registration.

Oct. 9 is the deadline to register or update voter registrations in Pennsylvania ahead of the General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

“This election is important – offices to be voted on include a U.S. Senator, Governor and Lieutenant Governor, a number of senators and representatives in the general assembly. Every eligible Bucks County citizen deserves the chance to weigh in,” said Sue Houston, the League’s Citizen Advocacy Committee chair.

“Voter registration is the key to helping shape the future of our country. As is our tradition, we offer voter registration events prior to registration deadlines and encourage people to register any time using VotesPA.com or contacting our Board of Elections here in Bucks County.”

League volunteers will be at the Pipersville Free Library from 3 to 5 p.m. and again from 7 to 8:30 p.m.; at Warminster Township Free Library from 5 to 7:30 p.m.; and at Bucks County Free Library – Doylestown from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.

“The League of Women Voters of Bucks County empowers hundreds of voters through education, registration and get-out-the-vote activities in every election,” said League Co-President Jan Hendershot, “We encourage voters to visit LWVBucks.org to learn about the candidate forums we are hosting and learn about resources to assist you with voter registration. Candidate-provided information on issues will be on the League of Women Voters’ VOTE411.org, by late September. As a nonpartisan group in existence nationally now for 99 years, we believe our democracy is strongest when every voice is heard and are glad to be one of over 2,000 partnering organizations with National Voter Registration Day.”
