Policies and procedures when offering voter registration to library patrons

Directors, officials at the Secretary of State's office have recently become aware that outside groups are distributing voter information that is misleading or incorrect, and are asking libraries to post such information. Libraries should not post ANY voting information, and should only use information from the election connection website (see below for link) when assisting patrons. I am forwarding a message from the voter services manager below. Please share with staff at all locations.

Thank you,
