Foothill Community College Political Awareness Day October 10th

Our League of Women Voters Los Altos Mountain View members partnered with Foothill College’s President and student leaders to hold multiple election information sessions and a noon time “rally” to encourage students to register to vote.  Pete Stahl (a League member) spoke to two classes about the “Why, How, and What” of voting. The students were engaged during the talks, asked questions and, at the end, several students commented that they found the information very useful.

Julie Cates helped organize the event with Foothill College and Ellen Wheeler, Karin Bricker, Lisa McLain and Carol Kuiper staffed tables on the plaza helping students to learn how to complete voter registration forms.  They also encouraged students to help other students register to vote.
