Voters Services

Voter Services strives to increase citizen participation in the electoral process and to increase political awareness in a nonpartisan manner. Each year, the League creates a Voters’ Guide that contains information on candidates and issues for the upcoming elections. The goal is to distribute the Guide to every household in Westport.

During the fall, debates are held to help citizens learn candidates’ positions on the issues.  Other community organizations are recruited to co-sponsor. Questions from the audience highlight voter concerns and issues. Debates are usually broadcast on the local government access cable channel.

Voter Services assists the Westport registrars with registering eligible high school students and educating the public on voting changes such as the new optical scanning voting machines. Voter Services is continually developing “Get out the Vote” campaigns and exploring new ways to increase voter turnout.
