Lewis County unveils new website for voters
A new election website has launched in Lewis County!
Chris Flanagan, the Lewis County Clerk, announced the new website on Thursday.
The website will better meet the needs of voters, candidates and media in the county.
The new site, lewiscountyvotes.org, will serve as a convenient, one-stop shop of voting information for the upcoming general election and beyond.
Now more than ever, people are looking online to find the information they need to vote. We had some basic voting material on our old website, but it wasn't as user friendly as we wanted. With our new website, voters can quickly find the information they are looking for the most, like sample ballots and polling place locations," says Flanagan.
The site was built with the help of a nonprofit organization based in Chicago rather than hiring a vendor, to save the county resources.
We see this website as an important resource for our community but it's also a resource for us. We've learned new skills to publish and maintain the site on our own, and we'll be using it to keep a lot of our important election information organized for our reference," says Voter Registration Clerk Kathy Sly.
