Our push to cover the local elections on the VOTE411 website is off to a strong start. Members and other interested people stepped up to cover 30 out of the 35 municipal races in the county, Monmouth and Ocean freeholder races and many Board of Education elections. Huge thanks to Ted Dellinger (LWVTO) who is handling the website, www.vote411.org, which is gradually populating with local races.
