Nevada lieutenant governor to join experts to help voters make a plan before the 2020 election ends
WASHINGTON – With just one week until voting ends on Election Day, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and All Voting is Local, with its joint And Still I Vote campaign, will assemble state officials and voting rights experts to discuss election protection, voters’ rights, and how to prepare for potentially long lines on Election Day during a Facebook Live event on October 27 at 5:30 p.m EDT.
These events are part of Turn Up Tuesdays, a weekly national call to action to make sure people are informed and activated to vote in the general election. Turn Up Tuesdays is dedicated to ensuring that voters, some of whom are currently waiting more than 10 hours to cast a ballot in the general election, are doing everything in their power to have their voices heard and participate in our democracy. Some 60 million votes have already been cast in the 2020 general election.
Tuesday, October 27
5:30 – 6:00 p.m. EDT
Turn Up Tuesday Facebook Live Event – Nevada’s lieutenant governor will join voting advocates to discuss voting options and what resources are available to voters as they engage in the voting process.
