CHESTERTOWN — The on­line Vot­ers’ Guide from the League of Women Vot­ers is now avail­able at vote411. org.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease, can­di­dates for every of­fice in every county in Mary­land were asked to re­spond to ques­tions re­lat­ing to the du­ties of the of­fice they are seek­ing and to list their web­sites and so­cial me­dia pages. More than 1,500 can­di­dates re­sponded to the league’s ques­tions.

To ac­cess the Vot­ers Guide from the League of Women Vot­ers go to Vote411.org and type in your street ad­dress. You will then be able to see your can­di­dates and what they stand for, writ­ten in their own words.

Vot­ers can then make se­lec­tions and be­gin build­ing their own bal­lot. Click fin­ish to email your vir­tual bal­lot to your­self and save or print to take it with you to your polling precinct as a guide.

Vote411 also lists league­spon­sored can­di­date fo­rums through­out Mary­land. From Vote411, the voter can ac­cess the Mary­land State Board of Elec­tions web­site to re­quest an ab­sen­tee bal­lot or up­date their voter regis­tra­tion in­for­ma­tion, ei­ther to change party af­fil­i­a­tion or pro­vide a new ad­dress.

Printed copies of the Vot­ers Guide will be avail­able at the Kent County Pub­lic Li­brary and at the League of Women Vot­ers ta­ble at the Farm­ers Mar­ket on Oct. 27 and Nov. 3.
