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.
