Today’s Local Actions – Tues 8/11  – “This is how voting will work” Edition

VENTURA COUNTY VOTERS: Watch this well-researched video from our dedicated NON-PARTISAN League of Women Voter members, who explain how voting will work in our county for the Nov. 3rd election. Please share this with those who are anxious or suspicious of the process. (BTW – The League is an awesome group that anyone can support and/or join, even the non-women out there.) For those who prefer a written informational sheet about this year’s voting format, go here.
