Rock the Vote!

Mariposa AAUW raises community awareness and provides voter education events to prepare citizens to exercise civic responsibilities.

We offer several community events that support voter education. Our last big voter education event was our Election Forum. Scroll down to learn more.

The AAUW Election Forum is a moderated event for non-partisan office elections.

AAUW seeks to involve the community in identifying topics of interest related to the elected office and to facilitate an environment for sharing ideas.

The purpose of the forum is to encourage the free exchange of ideas between the community and candidates.

The forum provides a chance for the candidates to hear of issues of importance to the community as well as an opportunity for the community to learn about the candidates’ position on issues.

Our last Election Forum was held….
