Voter suppression — fact or fiction? Our secretary of state has the answer

…But you’ll have to show up at a Denver League of Women Voters “Drinks and Dialogue” get-together Sept. 18 at Bogeys on the Park, in Denver’s City Park West ‘hood, to learn what Williams has to say about it all. (A good guess: He will assure those who attend that there’s no voter suppression in Colorado; certainly, not on his watch.)
You even can bend the elbow with the affable elections czar during the meeting’s scheduled “social gathering,” from 5:30 p.m. to 5:50 p.m., before Williams starts to talk and take questions. Just don’t expect the teetotaling Republican to hoist a tankard of anything stronger than lemonade.
Here’s more, from a League press release:
…Williams was elected Colorado’s 38th Secretary of State in 2014 after serving as the El Paso County Clerk & Recorder from 2011 to 2015. We hope to socialize and learn about this important topic.
Q: Why is the League of Women Voters interested in whether voter suppression is fact or fiction?
A: The League of Women Voters has a long history of protecting voting rights. Protecting the right to vote is indivisibly part of the League’s basic purpose and voting is a fundamental citizen right that must be guaranteed.
Q: Why do we want to have a public dialogue with Secretary of State Wayne Williams?
A: One of the duties of The Secretary of State is to ensure the integrity of elections. Integrity of our elections is a “hot topic” that needs to be addressed.
Bogey’s on the Park is at 2500 York Street in Denver 80205.
