Volunteers were at the Hispanic Health Fair held at UCONN Stamford this past Saturday helping voters to register, learn more about municipal elections this November and the upcoming Census, and sign up for our Voter’s Guide.
On Tuesday, September 24, 2019, the League of Women Voters of Stamford participated in National Voter Registration Day. We registered 32 voters, signed up around 50 people to our Voters Guide email list, and answered hundreds of questions. Volunteers were at:
Stamford High School
Westhill High School
Academy for Information Technology and Engineering
JM Wright Technical High School
Thank you to volunteer, Shira Tarantino, for the photos.
We were at the Ferguson Library during the Arts and Crafts on Bedford event Saturday, September 14, 2019. We spoke to many residents of Stamford and the surrounding area about voter registration and upcoming elections.
We were excited to return to HarborFest this year. We spent the day helping new residents of Stamford change their voter registration, handed out copies of They Represent Us, and answering questions about this year’s upcoming municipal elections.
The LWV of Stamford sent 4 representatives to the LWV CT State Convention. We voted to approve the state budget, changes to League positions on Public Access TV, and participated in workshops on advocacy, debate prep and grant writing. Find more information under Member Materials.
Here are the unofficial Stamford Elections Results.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who were at the polls for Election Night reporting.

During the month of October, the LWV of Stamford worked with the Rose Company properties, Shippan Place and Metro Green Terrace and Residential, to engage residents in the upcoming election. Through a generous grant by the Rose Company and League of Women Voters US Educational Fund, the LWV of Stamford conducted 3 voter registration drives, and assisted with the organization of a Candidate Forum at Shippan Place.
At each event, volunteers of the LWV of Stamford helped around 40 residents register in CT for the first time, submit change of address forms, and/or request absentee ballots. We also educated over 100 residents on voter id requirements, accommodations for voters with disabilities, polling location, what positions are up for election and where to find our voters guide.
Thank you to all residents who came out and met with us! We’ll be back in the new year with forums at all locations for residents to meet and talk with their local representatives.
