    VOTE411 Workshop - Eastern Shore


    Essential training in the use of VOTE411 to prepare your Voters' Guide.  This will be a hands-on workshop so participants should bring a laptop and be prepared to log into the system and practice basic steps in editing office descriptions, entering questions for candidates, and preparing emails to candidates.   

    Space is limited at this location, so please register early so we can plan to ensure that at least one person from each county attending will have space to use their laptop.
