  • 2020 Voter Guide will be hosted on Vote411, and volunteers are still needed, because there will be a paper edition, too and the candidates will require notification and sometimes prodding.

There is an extensive discussion of how Program Planning works and activities currently in progress at the local, state, and national levels, which you may want to join. Everyone is encouraged to attend and learn!
