Black History Festival — February 24, 2018
Enjoyed talking to friends and registering voters at the Hope Station Black History Festival at Hamilton Elementary School. We asked young children if they were registered–which opened the conversation with their parent/s. Answered voting related–or not–questions which means we are viewed as a credible information source.
Two members of the Hope Station Women’s Group walked the corridors and registered three voters. We look forward to collaborating with them on future events.
Joining Forces with Hope Station Women’s Group — February 13, 2018
Preparing for voter registration at the Hope Station Black History Festival on February 24th, AAUW Carlisle trained members of the Hope Station Women’s Group who will volunteer at the AAUW Carlisle voter registration table.
Ann Pehle, AAUW President, provided an overview of how to register voters and hold a registration event. Many great ideas about how to engage voters for the primary and general election were discussed. It is going to be an exciting collaboration!
Harvest of the Arts Voter Registration — September 23, 2017
We are all set and ready to go. This is our fourth year registering voters at Carlisle’s Harvest of the Arts on September 23. For the second year, we are in front of the Bosler Library–which is now our new favorite place. And, we have the preparation down, meaning we had time to spare before the official start. Volunteers from AAUW Carlisle, League of Women Voters, Cumberland Valley Rising, and the AAUW Dickinson College we registered 18 voters. Just as important, we answered dozens of questions and highlighted the importance of making our voices heard by voting on November 7.
