Event Date: 
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Local elections are critically important. Every day, over half a million local elected officials are making important and influential decisions about core services like police and fire, transportation, housing, and drinking water. But in spite of the incredible impact local elected officials can have on people’s lives, voter turnout in local elections is low, often below 15% of the eligible voting population. Join this webinar to explore the problem of low voter turnout in local elections and discuss possible solutions.
