League thanks community for election efforts

To the editor:

In the recent election season in Hamilton County, more than 75 percent of registered voters exercised their civic privilege, with more than half of those voters choosing absentee or early voting. And they did so during a pandemic that complicated nearly every aspect of the voting process, a feat that reflects dedication of the voters themselves as well as community organizations. 

The League of Women Voters of Hamilton County appreciates these community partners whose flexibility and practicality assisted voters in not only getting to the polls, but also provided important information.

First, we thank all the employees at the Hamilton County Election Office, who shared information that the league passed on to voters through its social media and other outlets. The office assisted with data for the league’s website, which features election data, poll location information and candidate platforms. 

County libraries helped the league stage its customary candidate forums, which were pre-taped this year due to the pandemic. Staff at Carmel Clay Public Library, Hamilton East Public Library and Westfield Washington Public Library helped with publicity and technology, while league volunteers served as moderators. 

Many of the candidates themselves generously provided information and shared their views for the league’s website and the forums, which featured questions submitted by the public. We appreciate their willingness to work with the league on these projects. 

Finally, we value our members, who each year organize the series of forums, compile databases and other data for the site, and work to inform voters of polling locations, hours and policies. During the pandemic, this work has been challenging and rewarding. 

To our community, we hope you will follow us as we gear up the next legislative session. Find us on Facebook or on our website,

Lisa Dick, president
League of Women Voters of Hamilton County
