The Alton YWCA is putting forth a “locally driven, multi-racial” effort to increase voter participation in Madison County.

The YWCA’s Get Out the Vote Project will host two virtual candidate forums featuring local mayoral candidates from Godfrey and Alton, answering questions from local residents.

YWCA Executive Director Dorothy Hummel tells the Big Z you do not have to live in Alton or Godfrey to voice your opinion.

The Village of Godfrey Mayoral candidate forum will be held at 7:00 pm on Monday, March 15th via Zoom.

The Zoom conference for Alton mayoral candidates is at the same time on March 23rd. To register for either Get Out the Vote Project event, or to submit your comments about issues you want your local leaders to address, you can visit the link below.
