PTA Council Joins the League of Women Voters to Sponsor 2014 Election Events

Your Vote Counts!

November 4th is Election Day and this year has a number of important races which affect our community, particularly Berkeley schools. The Berkeley PTA Council is proud to be a sponsor for a number of upcoming events put together by the League of Women Voters Berkeley Albany and Emeryville (LWVBAE). These should be lively and informative affairs which we hope will help voters as they consider their selections.

The LWVBAE has worked hard to set up this years events but needs help to make these successful. Following are the events scheduled for Berkeley. These are kicked off by a new type event - Speed Date Your Candidate - which not only provides the opportunity to ask your questions directly to the candidates, but lets you see how they act under time pressure. Along with the event information, the list below includes links to the LWVBAE's sign-up sheets if you can help them at the events.

Whether as a helper or part of the audience, we encourage everyone to take advantage of these opportunities and join in the process. Most importantly, remember to vote on November 4th!
