Saturday, August 18, 2012, 10 AM to Noon
4350 E. 22nd Street, Tucson Summer Meeting – “Ballot Security and Voter Suppression”.
The LWVGT has joined others in voter registration throughout Pima County and all over the United States. The barriers for citizens to vote have been acknowledged by many Local Leagues. This topic was brought up in a planning meeting by members who wanted to know more about any voter suppression in our community and how protected is our ballot when we vote.
We will have two speakers who will provide information on this issue:
F. Ann Rodrigues, Pima County Recorder, will tell us of the outreach efforts made by her office to secure voting rights for registered voters. Barbara Tellman, former League Vice Chair, member of the Pima County Commission on Election Integrity, will share information about voter rights and suppression.
