This team is charged with arguably the most important work of the League – educating citizens about voting procedures and laws, providing opportunities for voter registration, and reaching out to groups with limited access to registration and voting. Additionally, this team attends the Board of Elections meetings as a way of monitoring BOE decisions to ensure that elections are fair and honest. Aiden Carson leads this team.
Volunteers are needed to assist with voter registration and outreach, and BOE monitoring. Training is available, and all are welcome to participate – in both participation and idea suggestion!

Traveling to elder care facilities to help ensure the understanding of changed laws, educate about Absentee Voting
Created voter education presentations for the Newcomers’ Club, the Consortium on Aging, and UNCA students
