NOTE: The FINAL Theodore Talk of 2022 will occur on Sunday, October 23rd; the topic is The Evolution of Voting in the United States.

Voting is a foundational activity for democratic countries. However, at the birth of our nation, voting rights were quite exclusive. Stacey Webb, League of Women Voters, will review the numerous struggles for long sought voting rights as we have slowly progressed to include more citizens as voters and more people as citizens. The United States has a complex voting system; Webb will review the many new voting laws enacted this year.
