The legislative committee of the Falmouth League of Women Voters will present a panel discussion on Thursday, March 19, at 7 PM in the Hermann Foundation Meeting Room of the Falmouth Public Library.
This program, which is open to the public, will feature a discussion during which state Representatives David T. Vieira (R-East Falmouth) and Dylan A. Fernandes (D-Falmouth) will have the opportunity to converse with Falmouth Town Clerk Michael Palmer about election-oriented bills introduced in the Massachusetts Legislature during the current term. The bills cover a wide spectrum relating to the convenience of voting, the vote-counting process, and the candidate pool, such as same-day registration and ranked-choice voting.
The focus is on voting and elections to honor the centennial of women’s suffrage and the founding of the national League of Women Voters. The panel discussion will be preceded by a brief skit inspired by early 20th century articles published in the Falmouth Enterprise. After the panel discussion, members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments.
