Greetings Voter Registration Volunteers and Friends!
We’re back. Many of you offered to help again if there were opportunities before the next round of local elections in Bridgeport, Fairfield, and surrounding areas.
Last summer, over 60 volunteers registered hundreds of new voters. Barbara created a voter registration kit and training, which she will offer again for new volunteers or as a refresher.
