Virtual Town Hall on Nov. election process with DeKalb County Clerk Doug Johnson Tuesday

The League of Women Voters of DeKalb County (LWVDC) and Northern Illinois University’s All in Democracy Challenge will sponsor a virtual town hall with DeKalb County Clerk Doug Johnson Tuesday.

The subject of the townhall will include Johnson’s plans to ensure the 2020 elections to be safe, secure, fair and accessible, according to a news release from the league.

Although large numbers of Americans will vote by mail thisyear, in-person voting options remain essential for the 2020 elections. The League is a non-partisan organization which advocates for protecting and expanding both in-person voting and vote by mail. Questions have been submitted in advance, but the audience is also encouraged to ask questions at the townhall.

The meeting will be held via Zoom from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8. The meeting’s link is http://bit.ly/DeKalbTownHall or viewers can call into the meeting at 312-626-6799.

The format of the event will be questions and answers with a moderator. The moderator will read the questions gathered from the public and LWVDC members. The moderator will state the ground rules, explain the format to the audience and interrupt the town hall to enforce the ground rules if necessary.

Hate speech, bullying and degrading comments will not be tolerated. Campaign material may not be visible on camera. Anyone who violates the rules will be disqualified from participation in the town hall.

The LWVDC may record the event and claims ownership of all recordings or transcripts produced. No voice, image or other duplication of the town hall may be used by any participants or the campaign in any campaign advertising.
