In our last program of this series, League member Sue DeArmond interviews host Vivian Harte about voter access. Some states have made voting more difficult, which is called voter suppression, and some states have made voting easier, which is called voter expansion. Both are happening at the same time throughout our country. Vivian details which states are on the two different sides of the coin.
This is Part 3 of a 3 Part post-election wrapup following an original 8 Part Series which led up to the 2018 November 6th General Election in which the League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson interviewed candidates for State of Arizona offices. In addition, members of the League were interviewed about topics that affect voters on local and national levels, including, what to know about registering to vote in Pima County, ballot propositions, voter suppression/voter expansion, removing voters from voter rolls, gerrymandering, restitution of voting rights (felons voting), election integrity, and the importance of every vote.
League member Vivian Harte serves as host of the program. To aid voters in making informed decisions at the polls, candidates for each respective position are being asked the same questions. KXCI 91.3 FM Community Radio is partnering with the League to air these interviews with the community.
