With heightened interest by the public in the candidates on the November General Election ballot and where they stood on issues, we decided to print more copies of the Voters Guide than ever. Since 2018 we have printed 20,000 copies, up from 10,000 in previous years. This time we printed 23,000, and every one of them was distributed.
We were able to increase the number of locations and organizations that received Voters Guides, and several more groups have asked for them in the future.
Besides interest in the election itself, our efforts to introduce more people to us and what we do reaped a benefit in increased requests for Voters Guides. Our Community Outreach team told many people about them and distributed them at the many events they held, and we spoke at events held by other organizations about them and the online guide, VOTE411. We reached out to the political parties, asking them to explain how important it is for all candidates to respond to our questions. It resulted in more voters being informed in a nonpartisan, unbiased way about what the candidates stand on important issues.
