Media Advisory: Rep. Tlaib, Advocates to Host Town Hall to Empower Michigan Voters to Vote by Mail Amid COVID-19

WHAT: On Monday, Jun 29, 2020 at 7 p.m. EST, U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich. 13) and voting rights advocates from All Voting is Local Michigan, Detroit Action, and the League of Women Voters of Michigan will host a nonpartisan telephone town hall to answer questions from voters about voting amid COVID-19 and the particular challenges in Black and Brown communities including: polling place closures in their communities, and new state processes and deadlines for voting by mail.

While Michigan officials have expanded voting by mail amid COVID-19, the process may be unfamiliar to many of the state’s voters. The panelists will discuss that voting by mail is safe, secure, and accessible, and answer questions from callers in the Detroit area.

The town hall will be moderated by reporter Olivia Lewis of BridgeDetroit.
