Stone’s presentation will explain how Orange County determined the Vote Center Model and how each voter will be able to exercise their voting rights. She will discuss voting by mail, voting centers, and mail drop boxes. The presentation will have opportunities for questions.

Although there has been a lot of publicity about voting, the majority of potential voters do not know about the changes due to COVID-19. Even those that do know about Voting Centers have questions about how it all works. The club hopes the presentation will help answer questions and can refer anyone to the correct source for any questions it cannot answer.

The League of Women Voters will provide a presentation on the 12 propositions that will be on the California ballot, a brief overview of registration and voting in Orange County, and information about Voter’s Edge, the ballot look-up tool. The presentation will not cover local propositions, just those that are statewide. The initiative process was created 100 years ago so California citizens would not have to rely only on lawmakers to make new laws. Propositions can create new laws, change or repeal existing laws, change the State Constitution and approve a bond measure.

The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. It encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influence public policy through education. While the presentation will have two slides on the Vote Centers, the primary focus will be on the propositions and information on what a ‘yes’ and a ‘no’ vote means, the impact of the proposition and who is for and who is against. Each proposition will be talked about in detail so that the audience can feel prepared to make an informed decision based off their own belief system.

Anne Stone has been a member of the League of Women Voters for several years. She has presented on pros and cons in past years and on the Orange County Vote Centers this past year. She is the co-membership chair of the Orange Coast Chapter.

The next four speakers for the month of October will be business and life coach Bob Dabic on Oct. 9, Alice West of Reinvent Your Space will be the speaker on the 16th, Seal Beach Police Officer Jon Ainley will be the speaker on the 23rd; and Vice President of Outreach & Advocacy, Alzheimer’s Orange County Patty Mount, will be the speaker on Oct. 30 .

The topic of each guest speaker’s presentation will be announced L.W Weekly with detail of meeting announcement and link information to join.

The Sunshine Club often has LW leaders come to meetings to introduce their organizations to the group. It also invites a wide variety of specialists from outside to share their experiences and ideas with club members. The club always welcomes new people.
