- Under 2 % of our community attended town/village meeting last year
- Under 14 % of registered voters voted in the last local elections
- In a typical year, in order to participate in every Local, State and National vote, an Essex Town resident needs to vote 4 different times, a Village resident 5 times.
- Our elected officials, board and commission members, and town meeting participants, do not reflect the growing ethnic diversity of our community
We think our community can do better but we need your help!
- Please take our short survey to let us know how you participate and share your priorities. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Essexvotes
- Please Join Us on Saturday, Nov 8th from 12-4 p.m.at the EHS cafeteria to talk with your fellow Essex residents and local leaders about how we vote in Essex – now and in the future
- It will begin with a FREE lunch· It will be interactive and we’ll have some prizes to give away
· We will share the results of the survey
· You will have a chance to share your ideas about how we can increase participation in our community
Your voice and perspective will add a lot to the conversation and we really hope you will join us! For more information, please contact Heart and Soul of Essex
