“How to impact ELECTIONS & VOTING RIGHTS lawmaking through your stories”
The topic will be election reform, focusing on the proposed ranked-choice voting amendment to the Maine Constitution and joining the interstate National Popular Vote compact, as well as other proposed fair election and voting rights legislation.
The session will be led by Representatives Allison Hepler, HD53, and Holly Stover, HD89, and Sarah Rawlings, advocacy and organizing director for Democracy Maine (a new nonpartisan collaboration of the League of Women Voters of Maine and Maine Citizens for Clean Elections).
Each workshop begins with an overview of proposed legislation related to the scheduled theme and concludes with expert instruction on providing testimony at public hearings, contacting legislators, and sharing your voice with friends, family and neighbors through social media or by writing letters to the editor.
