“The act of exercising your right to vote is the single most important way to make your voice heard,” said Midcoast Women, in a news release.
This fall, Midcoast Women introduces “Moving the Needle,” a series of forums to encourage women to use their voices during this election season.
The first forum, “All Things Voting,” will be Thursday, Sept. 17, starting at 6:30 p.m., via zoom.
Nadine Bangerter from the League of Women Voters; Deb Dodge, a longtime volunteer at Camden’s polling station; Amara Ifeji, a recent graduate of Bangor High School and grass roots organizer; Robyn Walker-Spencer, a first-time young voter; and Lillian Hubbard, a climate change youth activist, will discuss ways they’ve become involved in and work to engage others in the process – from efforts to increase voter registration and provide oversight on election day to discovering creative and meaningful ways that engage the younger members of the electorate.
“Not knowing how, when or where to vote cannot be an excuse!” said Midcoast Women, in a news release. “The presenters will answer all of your questions about voting, especially this year amid a pandemic.”
