Register to Vote!!!

VOTE411.ORG- Election Information You NeedLeague of Women Voters

Dear Friend,

Last week, National Voter Registration Day was a huge success! Thousands of organizations, including over 350 state and local Leagues, came together to register hundreds of thousands of new voters in communities and online.

Our push to help new voters register or update their voter registration isn’t over, but time is running out –voter registration deadlines in many states are just days from now! Continue to help the League make sure every eligible citizen across the country is registered and prepared to vote on Election Day – make sure you are registered to vote at your current address, then ask your friends and family if their voter registration is up to date or if they need to register for the first time!

With Election Day nearing, now is the time to help voters get ready to head to the polls. The critical first step is making sure as many people as possible are registered.

This Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, millions of voters will head to the polls and stand up for what matters most to them. Together our votes will influence policies and issues that are decided by our elected officials. These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities and our future. They are about us; we all need to weigh in. 

Make sure the people in your life are registered and ready to vote in November!

Thank you for registering to vote and for Making Democracy Work®.

Ohio PTA to Hold Online Book Fair

We’re excited to talk about our statewide book fair to benefit students throughout Ohio. 

This is a 100% online book fair with Children’s Bookstore.  If you arrive at the website through a page other than our book fair page, please enter the following code:  OhioPTA.

This unique book fair is scheduled for November 1st to 15th, 2016. The book fair will provide money for the Ohio PTA Scholarship Fund. Ohio 2017 graduating seniors who will be enrolled in college, university or technical programs are eligible for scholarships. (This is not a scholarship for students currently enrolled in colleges, or universities or technical programs.)

As a supporter of all children and youth, we need your help to get the word out about the book fair.  If we act together, we can truly help students all over Ohio.  Here's how you can help:

1. Become familiar with the book fair. Click here to visit our book fair page.  We will earn 30% of every purchase made at the online book fair.

2. Send book fair announcements via emails or social media to your colleagues, friends, family, PTA districts, councils and local units. We need to spread the word as much as possible throughout the state – and beyond. There will be additional announcements to market our book fair that we encourage you to forward to your contacts based on the following schedule: 
  • October 25:              Book Fair Announcement
  • November 1:             Book Fair Kick-Off
  • November 8:            Half Way Reminder
  • November 14:          Two Days to Go
  • November 15:          Last Minute Reminder
There are more than 200,000 books available from baby books to young adult books. Every book on the website is eligible for our book fair.

When you do your Christmas shopping for books, you'll be helping many high school seniors all over our state.

Thank you in advance for your significant support of this event.

Happy Reading!
