At Ivy Tech in early September they registered 2 voters, confirmed 15 registrations, changed 2 addresses, and gave out absentee ballot information.
  • On Saturday, September 15 team members went door to door with the NAACP to register voters. The League also registered voters at the West Franklin Street Bazaar that day. 
  • The committee got in contact with the Evansville Housing Authority and began by registering voters at two sites -- Buckner Towers on Monday, September 17 and and Caldwell Homes on September 18.  
  • Voter information postcards and brochures on how to get a state ID were distributed to all of the libraries. Postcards were also distributed at the food pantries at Simpson United Methodist Church, St. Vincent de Paul and Annunciation Church, as well as at Patchwork Central and additional locations. 
  • All of the Be a Voter poster contest entries were displayed at Central Library starting September 23. The League had a voter registration table at the official opening of the exhibit on September 25, which was National Voter Registration Day.
