“Our goal with is to empower all citizens,” LVWHC President Lisa Dick said. “The personalized voter guide shows you more than a name on your ballot. It gives you the candidate’s position on various issues in their own words.”

League members have sought information from all candidates running in the upcoming election. They are contributing this information so that Hamilton County users can see who is running in their areas and learn more about their platforms.

When logging onto, simply enter your address, and all the information on the next page will be tailored to your area. The page includes election dates, links for first-time voters and links to check registrations. Some precincts may have changed due to recent redistricting, so double check your polling locations.

You will see descriptions of the offices, then photos and bios of the candidates who responded to the league’s request for info. Dick said each candidate was sent a survey by email or mail, and their responses were entered by their own representatives. The league does not edit candidate responses.

From there, you can find links to the Hamilton County early voting dates and locations, or you can go directly to the Hamilton County election office’s website for that info.

On your personalized ballot, you also will see township and school board races and candidates. Westfield voters will be able to review the Westfield Washington Schools operating referendum. They will be asked to vote yes or no on this option.

“There’s a lot of attention paid to the federal races, but local township and school boards impact our lives as much, if not more,” Dick said.

Her research shows that many voters opt for straight-party tickets. In those cases, voters may not see the referendum question, the school board races or other local options.
