Alabama Secretary Of State General Election Candidate Forum
The League of Women Voters of Alabama presents "A Candidate Forum for Alabama Secretary of State" Tuesday, October 11, 2022 - onlineforum The League of Women Voters of Alabama (LWVAL) believes that one of the most consequential elected positions in Alabama for 2022 is the Secretary of State (SoS). As Alabama’s Chief Elections Official, the SoS protects and ensures voting rights for every eligible citizen; provides fair, accessible, and secure elections. We have invited all Secretary of State candidates on your ballot to participate in this forum. The public always benefits from first-hand information about a candidate’s positions, statements, and values. In the hyper-polarized political environment of Alabama, we encourage everyone to take advantage of nonpartisan learning opportunities to listen to candidates express their views and opinions. An informed voter makes better decisions at the ballot box.
LWVAL Convention - Open Records Panel, July 17, 2021
On July 17, 2021, the League of Women Voters of Alabama hosted a virtual convention at which distinguished experts discussed open records legislation in the state house - legislation that would make government in Alabama more transparent at all levels. This is a video recording of that discussion. How can our laws make records readily accessible in a timely manner and at reasonable (or free) cost? How would such law be enforced? And how can this be done while protecting privacy rights as required? Panelists who discussed the issue were: * Sonny Brasfield, Executive Director, Association of County Commissions of Alabama * Tish Gotell Faulks, Esq., Legal Director, American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama * Felicia Mason, Executive Director, Alabama Press Association
