Voting Access: What If Voting Were Mandatory? with Mathew Nevarez

August 28, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm


Voting is an essential part of the electoral process. How do we vote? Where do we vote? What is the process for voting? Join us for an interactive thought exercise: Imagine a scenario where all Arizonans are required to vote. You are responsible for voter turnout. How do you ensure you get voters to the polls? How do you keep them informed? Let’s talk about what it means to have access to voting and voting information.

This program is cohosted by Glendale Public Library- Foothills Library
