My Town My Vote
The League's semi-annual effort to raise awareness of and participation in local elections
In "off" election years, when there are no federal-level elections, the voter turnout in Westport is lamentably low. My Town My Vote is our all out effort to reverse this trend and get people interested in local politics and elections. The approach varies from year to year, but we always need people and ideas to make this project a success.
