Michigan has no-reason absentee and our MISOS sent absentee ballot apps to all 7.7 million registered voters in Michigan. We didn't have the lines.
Rubyjean Gould
55:03
Williamsburg Area well represented...
Carolyn Caywood, she,her
55:21
How do we catch up the missing voter registrations from this Spring?
Gayla Keesee
55:27
Georgia SOS also sent out absentee ballot apps but still had the long lines because people didn't get their ballots in time.
Gayle Vaughan
55:44
Can I record this to share with our Voter Service/Exec. Committee team in Benicia California?
Joan porte
56:24
We know about the right to vote - we need to know HOW to protect the vote, please
Judy Ball
56:32
WV SOS send out absentee apps to all voters for Primary. Announced yesterday that he would NOT do that for General. WV has restrictive eligibility rules for absentee voting.
LWVUS Samyuktha Mahadevan (she/her)
57:09
Gayle, we will share a recording of this presentation on the League Management website!https://www.lwv.org/league-management/recruitment-engagement/organizing-resources-build-league-power
MaryLee Moulton
57:38
Same for the Nebraska SOS, but we went to the big counties and they agreed to use CARES money to pay for it. Hope this will put pressure on the SOS to do it statewide.
Kathy Chiron
59:00
Sadly, DC faces voter suppression because we have no voice in Congress, no senator or voting congressperson to speak up for us but perhaps more importantly for the purpose of this conversation is we face voter suppression because of the inefficiencies and weakness of our Board of Election.
Gayla Keesee
59:04
Need to urge Senators to pass the Heroes Act!
Ellen Penwell

Hi Wisconsin! LWV Albany County (NY) here. :D
Jennifer Jackson

Kentucky Secretary of State is not allowing universal mail in voting, although it was allowed in primary. Also new voter photo ID , when photo ID offices are closed. LWVKY lawsuit pending.

Wisc Election Commission will also contact 3M unregistered but eligible voters.
Connie Taylor

Johnson County Kansas election office mailed pre-populated advance mail-in ballot applications to all registered voters in the county.
Sarah Ferraro, NW Indiana
01:02:44
Indiana is soooo far behind all the others you mention. exactly WI is my home and I’m so glad they’ll have safer outcomes in voting in place now
regina tillman
01:03:05
Glad to see someone else from our area, Andrea! Can't wait to get some ideas!
Mary Galligan
01:03:51
JoCo, KS, were the applications for both primary and general?

LWVUS-Lizzy Ganssle
01:04:07
Yes, Josely this is recorded!
LWVUS Alicia Gurrieri (she/her)
01:04:29
Hi Josely! Yes, this is being recorded and will be posted on this webpage: https://www.lwv.org/league-management/recruitment-engagement/organizing-resources-build-league-power
Connie Taylor
01:04:31
Yes - both primary and general pre-populated applications for Johnson County Kansas.
Rosemarie Lamar

The Supreme Court decision was a disaster..
Jennifer Jackson
01:09:04
Does that include the VRAA.
Ellie Hutton
01:09:52
What was included on the previous slide with US map with some states shown in red?
Jennifer Jackson
01:10:53
McConnell has communicated with the LWVKY that voting is a states rights issue., not a federal issue, ooo quite discouraging.
Josely Castro
01:14:57
hi, sorry I asked this but
Josely Castro
01:15:02
logged off by mistake
Josely Castro
01:15:09

Joan porte
01:20:49
do you have messaging information we can use?
regina tillman
01:20:50
For real?"... WooHoo, Andrea!
Connie Taylor
01:21:01
Should these stories be shared from a candidate’s social media page?
Gayla Keesee
01:23:16
If the candidate collects the story - but not if we collect the story. We must remain non-partisan with parties and candidates.
Judy Ball
01:23:26
https://www.votebymailwv.com - nonpartisan forum, sponsored by LWV-WV and LWV-Morgantown/Monongalia County
Lisa Koteen Gerchick
01:23:44
Is this an official definition of voter suppression--overt barriers? For example, claims that voting by mail is subject to fraud can suppress voting but it is not necessarily targeted to a specific group or groups, just to reduce faith in elections
Connie Taylor
01:23:54
Yes - the candidate would collect the story and share it.
Mary Galligan
01:24:28
If people call election protection number, will they get to talk to a human being and get some concrete information about a solution?
Priya Palmer
01:25:17
Who monitors the 866 number and how will they act on the information received?
Gayla Keesee
01:25:32
@Lisa voting by mail myths do target certain groups if you think about it.
Alma Couverthie
01:26:36
I have volunteered for the Election protection number during primaries, you get a live person that will provide information, or elevate your issue for intervention, whether in field or legal.
Gayla Keesee
01:27:15
I was a poll worker in Georgia during the June 9 primary. I learned firsthand what issues were faced.
Linda Duckworth
01:27:52
Question for Vanessa: Are election officials more likely to operate properly if they know that there will be election observers at every polling station?
Andrea Sleeper
01:28:29
I will be a poll worker in August in Southern FL!
Gayla Keesee
01:28:57
@Vanessa Gonzalez - LWVGeorgia would LOVE to do a text-thon with you
Jennifer Jackson
01:29:11
What if you cell phone number has a different area code than where you live, are they able to recognize that you are still a constituent? (Does it match by your phone number or just by what your area code is?
Alma Couverthie
01:29:36
@Gayla , that's awesome!!!!
Gayla Keesee
01:29:54
A lot of cell phone users' area code doesn't match where they live.
Jennifer Avina
01:30:51
LWV San Diego is creating a 101 Days of Action list with the intent of sending out a concrete action each day by email and/or social media that people can take, related to voting and advocacy. You can sign up for the list at lwvsandiego.org (a pop-up sign up should appear when you first get there) to see what we are doing and what you might want to do with your local Leagues.
