Garry Ellis from the VA Dept. of Elections Will Speak on Virginia Elections October 11th
Rappahannock Indivisible—We the People is moving its meeting date in October
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Because the October topic of the Rappahannock Indivisible—We the People open meeting is voter registration, which closes this year on October 16, the group has moved its meeting up one week, to Wednesday, October 11th, at 7 p.m. followed by a how-to-register-voters training session.
This month’s speaker is Garry Ellis, from the Virginia Department of Elections. Ellis will speak about Virginia elections. Many folks don’t realize that Virginia has an election for some office every year. He also will speak about registration, including what one must do to register to vote in Virginia. He will clarify registration, voting, and voting rights restoration regulations.
Following the presentation, Ellis will run a brief training session for anyone in the community who wishes to become certified to register people to vote. There are no membership requirements to participate in this training, and no need to register in advance.
Rappahannock Indivisible is working on behalf of all citizens in the Northern Neck to assure that everyone eligible to vote casts a ballot. To help with this task, the group is organizing groups of volunteers to drive people to the registrar’s office and, on voting day, to the polls. Transportation will be available for those calling 804-480-9047 for a ride. Rappahannock Indivisible will help get people there and home again.
