Are You Registered to Vote?
Over 32,000 voters in Montgomery and Greene Counties were purged from the voter rolls last year, a process allowed by the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to clear the databases of inactive voters. League partners at the Ohio Unity Coalition set up this easy-to-use web portal where you can verify that you are still registered. If you are not, you will need to (re)register by 11 October to vote in the November general election. You can also check the complete listing of voters purged in your county: Greene or Montgomery (the files are rather large).
The League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area will honor this year's Dangerous Dames, Sharon Barrett-Mitchell and Michelle Riley, at a special dinner on 21 September 21 at the NCR Country Club. Both honorees have worked tirelessly to make Dayton a better place to live. Sharon Barrett-Mitchell, as executive director of the Dakota Center, helps residents of Dayton's MacFarlane neighborhood live the organization’s mission of “building character, connecting community.” She has received numerous leadership awards over her lifetime. Michelle Riley is the chief executive officer of The Foodbank, Inc. She devotes much of her time working to strengthen the hunger relief safety net and expand the local food distribution network. Under Michelle’s leadership, over 8 million meals were served to hungry neighbors during the last fiscal year alone.
The public is encouraged to attend to help recognize the ongoing contributions that Sharon Barrett-Mitchell and Michelle Riley make to our community. Contact the League Office at (937) 228-4041 for details, or to make a reservation, or use the link on our Calendar page.
