September 20, 2022 News Update

September Book Club
September 26, 2022
6:00 to 7:30 pm (in person)

Book Club 9.22
Please note the CHANGE IN TIME for this meeting: 6:00 PM instead of 6:30 PM, due to earlier darkness.
Also see additional important meeting information below.
The September Book Club will meet in person in the roofed picnic shelter of Riverside International Friendship Gardens. If the shelter is not available, we will meet at the Gardens entryway to select a different spot in the park, so bring a chair, and also perhaps a light given the earlier darkness. If weather is severe, we will meet via Zoom.
All participants should still Register! Registrants will receive a backup Zoom link if the outdoor venue needs to be canceled. They will also receive another timely email confirming whether or not the outdoor location is a "go."

What's On The Ballot - County Sheriff
County sheriff
What does the County Sheriff do?
The county sheriff is the county's chief police officer. The sheriff manages the activities of the sheriff's deputies, who carry out most of the county's law enforcement duties. This includes running the county jail and making arrests of individuals accused of committing crimes.
Why does this matter?
The person who is elected to serve as county sheriff has a lot of control over the policies and practices of the county’s law enforcement officers and county jails. These policies and practices set the tone for how crimes are investigated, how law enforcement interacts with the community, and even if eligible voters in county jails are able to access their right to vote. As an elected official, the county sheriff is held accountable by the voters.

Supporting Disabled Voters
A Statement from LWVWI
Disability Voting 9-20-22
MADISON, WI–The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin’s executive director, Debra Cronmiller, issued the following statement in response to a federal judge’s decision affirming absentee ballot return assistance for Wisconsin voters with disabilities.

“In a win for voters, today federal Judge Peterson confirmed that Wisconsin voters with disabilities have the right to receive absentee ballot return assistance.

“From requesting an absentee ballot to returning it to their clerk or polling place, voters with disabilities have ample protections throughout the entire voting process to receive the assistance they need to have their voice heard and their vote counted.
