General Election, November 3, 2020, Results

Voter services had a busy fall 2020!

Masked to Vote!    Pioneer Towers Voter Education   Mask - register to vote by mailLWVSC Masks.      100 masks were sold with the motto, “Register to Vote -- Vote by Mail”. According to members, the masks create interest with people asking about the election and saying "thumbs up" to voting.  

Postcards/Phone calls.   Thanks to many volunteers more than 7,500 postcards were written by over 40 League volunteers to Sacramento residents who are registered to vote, but had not recently voted. 

Distribute Registrar of Voter fliers.     500 “Register to Vote” English and Spanish flyers were distributed to foodbanks in collaboration with Sacramento Act.  

Post Office Voter Registration.     Twelve volunteers delivered more than 4,005 voter registration forms to 37 post offices in Sacramento County. We removed and returned to the ROV office hundreds of old voter registration forms.  

LWV Buttons.   LWV buttons were distributed to League volunteers to encourage votijng. 

Yard Signs to Vote.    The League  purchased yard signs that announce voting.  

Distribute “Register to Vote * Vote by Mail” flyers/posters.   Girls Scout created Colorful 8 x 11 ½ posters that we distributed to stores. Volunteers posted them in coffee shops and such.   

Social Media Messaging.   Communications Team posted information about voting on the web site and through social media.  We are reaching out to classes and CSUS and elsewhere. 

Forums.  We conducted Zoom pro/con and Candidate forums.   

Votersedge.org     Our volunteers contacted candidates to place information for voters on Voter's Edge.  We had 66% participation among our 131 candidates for Sacramento County local, state, and national races.   For the many city councils and a mayor’s race we had 82% participation.  They represented 39 of the 131 races.  

Observers at Vote Centers.    Twenty-two League members volunteered as an observer at a Vote Center which is an interesting and gratifying experience. All volunteers needed approval from the Registrar’s Office.   

Pop-up, Drive-Through Voter Registration.      We worked with a youth group for a local church.  A virtual training prepared church members for this event.  

Easy Voter Guides.            500 English, Spanish and Chinese Easy Voter Guides were distributed by our League volunteers. One new League member delivered Easy Voter Guides and other literature to multiple assisted living facilities in the area. 

Delivered posters designed by local Girls Scouts!

May 17, 2020, our Voter Services Team met virtually with Girl Scout Troop 1386 in Sacramento for their “Behind the Ballot Badge”. This badge was developed in 2011 to teach young women about elections and voting.  Marge discussed with the Girl Scouts interesting information about the history of voting, what the LWV does, the importance of voting, how to register/pre-register to vote, ways we vote in California, what happens the ballot after it is mailed, and how the troop can help with pre-registering high school students.  Congratulations to Kathryn Swartzlander (1st place) and Sureena Sharma (2nd place). 

We distributed the Girl Scout posters and a Registrar of Voters poster to food banks, homeless shelters and other locations.  The Registrar of Voters posters included a QR code with voter instructions in English and Spanish. 

We registered voters in person before COVID-19 took hold...

We assist with your own voting process....

Since 2006, we have helped private organizations such as homeowner's associations with their elections.  We conduct the election, collect the ballots and report the results. The LWV can be a neutral party and act as "Inspector of Elections" retaining custody and counting ballots.   lwvs [at] lwvsacramento.org (Contact us) to learn more.
