Ballot Information Night

River Country Solidarity

Marijuana, redistricting, voting policies...exactly what proposals will be on the ballot in November? The League of Women Voters will present non-biased information to help voters decide how they want to vote on each issue we go to the polls on November 6. The Glen Oaks millage request will also be discussed. Questions will be answered following the presentation at this free community event organized by River Country Solidarity. Learn more about all of the proposals on the ballot:
