Virtual Coffee on Wed, Oct 21

Dear Ridgewood Community,

postcard-sized invite for Wed Oct 21 at 7PM

With 2020 ballots already being cast, we are excited to invite you to our second Zoom at 7 pm on Wednesday evening, October 21 (details below). Our goal is to have an informed discussion about local election consolidation here in Ridgewood.

We’ll also be present at the session to answer questions and discuss why voting “Yes” on the Municipal Question is so important.

Attendance is limited, so please arrive on time.

We hope you’ll join us!

November Elections Make Democracy More Representative

Dear Ridgewood Community,

Last Tuesday evening, Professor Zoltan Hajnal, Professor of Political Science and Associate Dean at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy, joined us via Zoom to discuss why on-cycle elections matter. And today his piece, “New Jersey’s local elections should be rescheduled to be more representative,” is featured in the Bergen Record and the Ridgewood News.

Click here to read Professor Hajnal’s piece, in which he writes, “Moving to on-cycle elections is not only the right thing to do. It is actually possible. At the end of the day, the question is simple. Do we want local democracy run by the few or the many?”

And click here to view the slides from our Zoom Virtual Coffee Hour. Professor Hajnal shared his expertise and research on the local benefits of November elections around the country. In addition, we discussed the Ridgewood-specific benefits, and addressed some of the more common concerns we have heard from some neighbors.

We appreciate everyone’s support and remind you to vote YES on the Municipal Question on Page 3 of your ballots.

One Village, One Vote!

Shedding light on false “Vote No” mailer information

To Our Neighbors:

Over the weekend, you likely received competing “Vote Yes” and “Vote No” mailers about moving our local elections to November. We are excited for a constructive dialog which enables the community to make educated decisions on the ballot. However, we were disturbed by a number of falsehoods and misleading claims on the “Vote No” mailer.

We at One Village One Vote have been open about our data sourcing and have run a campaign based on facts. Unfortunately, our opposition has not. We have therefore written this letter to correct the misinformation shared by those who wish to defeat the ballot question on election consolidation.
