To the Editor:
Why vote? Why is this election so important? The Trumbull PTSA Council is working to answer these questions with our “Get Out the Vote” program, targeted towards parents of students in the Trumbull Public Schools. The PTSA Council has coordinated candidate forums and debates with the League of Women voters, and each event has been filmed and is available on Trumbull Community Television. Our renewed our “Get Out the Vote” efforts this year strive to provide general information about the election, the candidates, voter registration and polling locations. PTSA Council has sent reminders and links to websites where parents can find out more about the candidates running. And look for our exciting “Kids’ Vote 2015” program at the elementary schools on Monday, Nov. 2! The one thing we cannot do, however, is make people show up to vote.
