TLA TALKS: Libraries and the Vote
September 28 is National Voter Registration Day. Libraries play a crucial role in public engagement and by Texas statute are recognized voter registration agencies. For decades they have provided resources, information, and a public space for all to exist as a citizen. Krystine Ramon, Staff Attorney in the Elections Division at the Office of the Texas Secretary of State will provide information on the legal requirements for serving as a voter registration agency. TLA public librarian members Michael Hardrick (Director, Forest Hill Public Library) and Heather Lowe (Adult Services Administrator, Dallas Public Library) will share their experiences implementing and managing voter participation, engagement, and education programs.
Cost: Free for TLA members; $25 for nonmembers
