League Deputy Registrar Training/Retraining. Because this past year has seen new laws for voting (17 year olds registering, on-line registration, same day registration and voting), a refresher course for experienced deputy registrars seemed appropriate. Next week, August 25-29, we will contact experienced county and city Deputy Registrars to see if you can attend. If you cannot attend, you can stop by the City Board of Elections during the day and receive special training. Any League member who wishes to become a Deputy Registrar is most welcome to attend. The September 18 meeting is for all League members
