The League of Women Voters of Central Delaware County (LWV) recently presented Delaware County Libraries (DCL) an award for Outstanding Community Service. DCL collaborates with the LWV to help county residents find voter registration, election, and candidate information using their Vote 411 website.
The award was presented virtually at a recent LWV board meeting and was delivered in person on July 11 to Diane Arnold, DCL’s reference and outreach coordinator, who orchestrated the effort between the local libraries and the organization.
It was presented by LWV Central Delaware County Chapter President Ann Mosakowski and board member, Joanna Nealon.
As part of the partnership between DCL and the LWV, local libraries displayed yard signs promoting Vote 411, a website that provides nonpartisan election related information to the public. Vote 411 is accessible at vote411.org. DCL also features Vote 411 in the We Recommend section of its website, under Voter Info, accessible at delcolibraries.org/ recommended-links. “Through our efforts with the League of Women Voters, we are able to help the public find the nonpartisan election information that they need,” said Catherine Bittle, DCL’s director. “This type of community centered collaboration enables us to provide vital services to (local) residents.”
In addition to the Vote 411 website, county residents can find a wealth of election information on the county election website, Delco Votes!, at delcopa. gov/vote.
