Join Wright Library for a conversation about voting. American Citizens have the right to vote for officials who will represent us and our interests in all levels of government. It's a right that many Americans hold dear and exercise regularly. However, many other Americans over the age of 18 don't vote for various reasons. Besides vote counts, other forces like gerrymandering, campaign money, errors, and possible hacking can affect election outcomes. What's great about America's voting system? What needs to be improved to keep our system fair and secure?  Registration requested. Drop-in participants also welcome.
Note: this is NOT an issues oriented discussion about the upcoming election.
