The League of Women Voters is seeking moderators

The League of Women Voters of Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit invite you to attend a debate moderator training to be held on Sunday, June 11th from 12:30-4 p.m. at the New Providence Memorial Library located at 377 Elkwood Ave, New Providence, NJ.
Why should you participate?
Candidate meetings have been around almost as long as the League of Women Voters. In 1924, a small booklet published by the League of Women Voters, suggested that we:
“hold pre-election meetings and invite all candidates to speak; collect and give out nonpartisan information on candidates and issues; conduct candidate meetings as a service to the voters because it gives them a means of forming a first-hand judgment of the candidates, and as a service to the candidates because it gives them an opportunity to present their views to audiences of varied political affiliation.”
The directive and the reasoning have not changed through the years. Hundreds of League candidate nights are held each year. They are considered special events in the election calendar and for very good reasons. League debates are fair. They are unbiased. They are conducted for informational purposes, without a hidden agenda, and are controlled by principles of nonpartisanship.
We need you to help with running these valuable events!
Please RSVP to Susan Ferris Rights at or 908.568.1884. Cost is $10 for materials. You are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch. Snacks and drink provided by LWVBHNPS.
