LWVB UPDATES THEIR POPULAR “VOTER’S INFORMATION GUIDE’’.

Two years ago, the Bloomington League of Women Voters developed the “Voter’s Info Guide.” Based on its popularity, we have created the “2018 Voter's Info Guide” which provides more information about the prima and the candidates for the November elections in Bloomington precincts. Print it out and bring it to the polls with you.
