The York-James City-Williamsburg NAACP Civic Engagement Committee
and the Williamsburg Area League of Women Voters
invite the public to
“Making Your Vote Count in 2021,”
a virtual voter education forum
Wednesday, April 14, at 7 PM.
Dianna Moorman, Director of Elections and General Registrar for James City County, will cover absentee voting, registration requirements and an update on the redistricting process. Pam Berg, LWV-Virginia Voter Access Committee Chair, will give an overview of election-related legislation taken up by the recent General Assembly.
LWV President, Sudie Watkins, says, “It is only fitting that the two oldest voting rights organizations in the U.S. join forces to help voters stay informed on changes to elections and voting in Virginia. There have been many subtle changes, as well as more substantial ones, that voters need to know.”
NAACP was formed in 1909. The Civic Engagement Committee of the NAACP works toward increased voter empowerment through voter registration, voter education, voter turnout and continually providing information about crucial legislation on the state and national levels. LWV, founded in 1920, has been a nonpartisan, activist, grassroots organization that believes voters should play a critical role in democracy. The League conducts voter education and promotes voter turnout across the country.
