The Maryland State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, in
partnership with the League of Women Voters of Maryland and the Maryland
State Board of Elections, is hosting an evening teleconference focused on
voting; voting basics, voting rights, and voting accessibility.  The event
will take place on August 21, at 6:00 PM.

Most Americans have a basic understanding of voting; to vote, you are
making your needs and values known to the leaders of your social group,
your city, your state, and your country. However, voting is much more
complicated than people often realize. Do you know all the rules? Are you
familiar with how your vote moves from the ballot to place a candidate in
office? Are you familiar with your rights regarding Accessible Voting?

Join us for this FREE event where we will discuss the basics of voting and
voting accessibility in Maryland.

This program is being held via teleconference:
