Assisting the April 10, 2011 Peruvian elections
in the DC area
Peruvian citizens, around the world, voted on April 10 for the President and legislature of Peru. Amigos de Bolivia y Peru members (and friends) in the Washington, DC area assisted the Peruvian Consulate in the voting process for approximately 14,000 Peruvian citizens residing in the Mid-Atlantic region (Delaware to Kentucky). Mike Wolfson (Peru 64-66) organized the volunteer effort with the Peruvian Consulate. We checked voters' Peruvian identity cards so as to instruct them where (two adjacent public school buildings, multiple doors) to vote.
The Peruvian Consulate has requested volunteers
for the June 5 runoff election.
The April 10 volunteers were John Bryant; Tino Calabia; Lindsey Eaves Carrasco; Bill Eilerman; Lenah Geer; Gloria Levin; Spence Limbocker; Jeff Lovelace; Michael McGuire; Manuel and Sulda (Yanira Rodriguez Salinas) Mijango; Kate Raftery; Sarah Stewart; Joe and Lois Stubbs; Monica Suber; and Mike Wolfson.
