Nonpartisan webinars help voters prepare for election
Thursday, September 17, 2020 by Tai Moses
The League of Women Voters of Texas is celebrating National Voter Registration Day with two new Zoom webinars that aim to help voters prepare for the upcoming November election. The first webinar, Tuesday, Sept. 22, at noon, will tackle the ins and outs of safe voting. League President Grace Chimene and Christina Adkins, the legal director of the Elections Division at the Texas secretary of state’s office, “will discuss everything you need to know about vote-by-mail in Texas and all about safer options for in-person voting and making sure your vote is counted.” The second webinar, Tuesday, Oct. 6, at noon, asks the question, “Who else is on the ballot (after the president)?” Panelists Brandon Draper, Susan Redford and Sherri Greenberg will discuss “the responsibilities of down-ballot offices” like school board, county commissioner and judges, “and how the elected officials impact the communities they serve.” The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan volunteer organization that “never supports or opposes candidates or parties, instead they encourage every eligible Texan to Be a Texas Voter. Their mission is: Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.”
