LWVWI is traveling by a Gear Up to Vote minivan making voter education stops at community events from the banks of the Mississippi to the shores of Lake Michigan, and from the cities along the southern border to the communities along Lake Superior.
At these events Leagues will assist citizens with voter registration, help them find their polling place, inform them about acceptable forms of photo ID, and point voters to resources where they can find out more about candidates and issues.
