Register to vote: Voter Registration Day is observed on Tuesday. In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register.

The League of Women Voters is once again observing Voters Registration Day by registering voters at The Shenandoah Community Health Center in Martinsburg, the Charles Town Shopping Plaza, and the Maddex Square Shopping Center in Shepherdstown. Volunteers will be there between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The League is a nonpartisan organization open to men and women interested in promoting good government through education and advocacy. For information about joining the Jefferson County League, contact or visit To help register voters, contact Carolyn Watson at 304-725-8049 or
