The League of Women Voters of Sanibel will hold a voter service meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Sanibel Public Library.

The power point presentation will inform voters of the 11 proposed Amendments to the Florida Constitution that will be on the general election ballot Tuesday, Nov. 6. Sanibel voters are encouraged to attend so they may cast an informed vote. The library is located at 770 Dunlop Road.

Linda Kramer, league vice president, states: “We will provide a balanced view of the amendments, with the pros and cons of each, so the voters can make up their own mind.”

In addition, attorney Mary C. Evans from the Florida Bar Association, will present the Bar’s education program: “The Vote’s in Your Court.”

She will discuss the roles of Florida judges, judicial elections, merit retention and why we vote for judges.

Attendees will receive the LWVF voter guide and the bar association’s publication on judicial elections. For more information contact Linda Kramer at sanibellwv@gmail.com.
