League of Women Voters to Hold Sunshine Week Event March 15

March 8, 2023

WARREN, Pa. – The League of Women Voters will be holding a 2-part event as part of Sunshine Week at the Warren Public Library on Wednesday, March 15.

The event will begin at 5 p.m. in the Slater Room and will feature presentations by Andrea Stapleford, Esq. and the LWV of Warren County.

Stapleford’s presentation, “The Requirements for Transparent Local Government,” will focus on the Sunshine Law. The LWV will follow with “Election Reform/Voting Rights,” a discussion of the study the LWV conducted as part of its educational mission in 2022.

The pros and cons of subjects as voter registration, early and mail-in voting, Drop Boxes, and Voter ID will be presented by League’s study group members for the public’s review. The presentation includes the current status of PA law for voting rights, with ideas and references from many other states’ voting rights.

“The Warren League with PA LWV supports effective elections laws that guarantee a citizen’s right to vote, ensure that elections are accessible, transparent, fair, and secure; promote universal voter participation, and provide voters with meaningful choices at the polls,” the League said in a release. “Currently, this topic is at the center of important national and state controversies.”

Those wishing to familiarize themselves with the study prior to the presentation may view it here, or follow the LWV of Warren County on Facebook.
