CEA Voter Toolkit Relaunched for 2020

Vote Here sign

This year, it’s more important than ever to not just know who and what you want to vote for, but how to correctly cast your vote during the COVID pandemic. With so much misinformation and confusion, we have relaunched our Voter Toolkit for 2020. This toolkit shares important information on recommended candidates, how to get involved in the campaign, and how to properly cast your vote, including important deadlines for voter registration and early ballot requests. Check it out, and feel free to share the link (chandlerea.org/votertoolkit) with others!

CUSD Governing Board Candidate Events on Tuesday, September 8

After our last Governing Board meeting, there can be no doubt how important it is to make sure quality candidates are elected to our Governing Board. To help inform our community about the candidates running to fill three vacancies in 2020, CEA is sponsoring two events on Tuesday, September 8.

From 6:00-7:00 pm, we will hold a Virtual Meet and Greet where the community can get to know our candidates better in an informal setting. From 7:00-8:30 pm, we will hold a Candidate Forum where all candidates will be asked the same questions about important issues facing CUSD. Both events will be held on Zoom to ensure participant safety.

For more information on these events, including how to register and attend, please visit our CUSD Governing Board Election page.
