League of Women Voters to bring Vote411 to Allen County

The League of Women Voters Fort Wayne is bringing a nonpartisan voter education tool to Allen County ahead of the primary elections.

Vote411 is a “one-stop shop” for election information that provides simple tools to help voters navigate the voting process, via its website.

Gayla Sorenson, the group’s co-president, said the tool is necessary because it can help voters make informed, non-partisan decisions come election day.

“I think if a candidate cares enough to respond to a non-partisan request in a meaningful way, then that tells you that they really are interested in all their constituents,” Sorenson said.

Vote411 is a national tool that lists candidates' stances on certain issues and can be used to compare candidates in one easy place. Voters can also use it to see their ballot and look up their polling place.

The Fort Wayne section of the website will go live on March 30.
