Registering voters is the first step to winning elections. As an appointed Deputy Voter Registrar you will help activate citizen engagement by encouraging people to vote and by registering people to vote.

One of the ways you may be appointed is through official training in your jurisdiction. After the class you will be required to take an oath and be sworn in as an official deputy voter registrar.

Join us if you are a currently registered voter in suburban Cook County. In this class, you will learn who is eligible to vote, ID’s needed to vote and paperwork used to officially register voters.

Health Care: A Human Right or a Profit Center??

Access to affordable healthcare in the U.S. is uncertain even for those who assume they are “well-insured”. For tens of millions, only emergency care is available. Unnecessary deaths, suffering from progressive diseases, and bankruptcies are an American disgrace. Other high-income countries guarantee affordable care.

From the Affordable Care Act to Single-Payer – learn about the paths forward.

Presenter: Ed Cole, business process consultant and progressive activist for universal healthcare.

Where: Frankfort Library, 21119 Pfeiffer Rd, Frankfort, IL 60423
When: Thursday, August 10th
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Sponsor: Indivisible South Suburban Chicago
