Voters empowered

Name: Jean Questel.

Age: 86.

Hometown: Akron.

Role: Member of the League of Women Voters of the Akron Area since 1984 and a past president.

She is involved so that she can provide meaningful nonpartisan analysis of candidates and issues for voters. “We work hard to get the questions [for candidates] to the point where we feel they are relevant to the situation and can be answered honestly by the candidates.”

“It’s good to be informed about your candidates and have the opportunity to look into issues with more information so that you become a better voter. You become a better member of the community when you realize what’s going on.”
