Radio Interview on Voter Info

Then Co-President Betty Hayford, Voter Services Chair Jennifer O'Neil, and Membership VP Kathy Tate-Bradish were interviewed at CRIS Radio, at the Chicago Lighthouse for People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired in 2015. They spelled out what voters need to know to be able to vote. Program host Ruth Frazier of FAACT (Forum to Achieve Altruism, Compassion, and Tolerance) asked the Evanston League members to elaborate on the mission of the League of Women Voters, and to inform the listeners about necessary voting information.

Understanding the Illinois Omnibus Election Reform Law
Illinois lawmakers passed the Omnibus Election bill the spring of 2021,which was signed into law by Governor Pritzker, June 17, 2021. Public Act 102-0015 makes major changes to the state's election code to strengthen cybersecurity measures, cope with delays to 2020 U.S. Census data, and further expand access to the ballot box for Illinoisans across the state. The Illinois Association of County Board Members and the Illinois Association of County Clerks and Recorders presented a webinar to explain the law.
