The message is to get registered and vote. If you would like the League of Women Voters to come to your organization, neighborhood or company to register voters, please email us (LWVERIE@gmail.com). Your vote is your voice in local, state and national elections. Your vote is your super power to create the change you want to see! Women and young people can decide the next election if they use their super power.
The project is being developed by a team of six -all known artists in Erie County, all women, all moms and all voters. The mural process being utilized is the poly tab technique. The intent is to place the mural in the Perry region of downtown Erie. The mural will be funded through grants and community donors. New Donors are still being accepted. There will be many opportunities for community painting days where the public will be able to participate. Watch this page and your Erie Daily Times. The newspaper will be covering the development of "Her Voice, Her Vote". A community project offering 100 women to mentor 100 women through the 2020 Presidential election process will also be undertaken. If you would like to be a mentor or you would like a friend to help you understand the election procedure, know the candidates and help you in other ways--like offering transportation, please email the League of Women Voters Erie County Chapter at LWVERIE@gmail.com or leave a message at the Erie Downtown Partnership-- 814-455-3743 .
