    You can make a difference by registering voters in our upcoming registration events this summer and fall. There are opportunities to volunteer for one shift, or if you're looking to get more involved, consider becoming the National Night Out Coordinator. LWVSP will provide signs, forms and information. All we need is you!

    If you have interest in any of the below opportunities, please email Sig Johnson (sigrid.johnson@comcast.net) to learn more and/or sign up.

    Highland Fest Voter Registration

    We are looking for six volunteers to cover 2-hour shifts at the Highland Park Library during Highland Fest on July 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

    Coordinator for National Night Out

    We are in need of a volunteer to coordinate voter registration in various communities during National Night Out, held on August 1. This would involve getting contact names from participating communities to help coordinate opportunities for voter registration.

    Registration Tables in Libraries this Fall

    We are looking for volunteers to register voters in five branches of local libraries this fall. The library managers are open to dates that fit our volunteers' schedules, but suggest evening hours of 4:00-6:00 p.m. or 5:00-7:00 p.m. when the libraries are most busy.

    Thank you for your continued dedication to the League and our cause!
