In preparation for the rapidly approaching local and state election cycle the LWVOC Speakers Bureau is gearing up to facilitate the voting process for Orange County residents.  To encourage voter turnout we want to educate our fellow Orange County residents on the importance of voting, how to be an educated voter and understand what is on the ballot.  To this end we are furnishing LWVOC members with the skills to speak to community groups about issues confronting their members who want to exercise their right to vote.

Our first workshop will examine the power point YOUR VOICE YOUR POWER YOUR VOTE which discusses the history of voting in the United States, the importance of voting, the voter registration process and Vote411 which provides important candidate information.   It is geared toward an adult audience and answers all the questions first time voters may have.  Depending on the need we will also have a workshop on how to present the power point as part of a zoom meeting.  Instructions on how to do a power point presentation to a live audience via a projector will also be covered.  For new LWVOC Speaker Bureau members there will also be a workshop on Speaker Bureau mechanics and best practices as a LWVOC representative. 

Our first workshop will be via zoom on Monday August 29, 7:00PM.  Please RSVP to You will be sent instructions on joining the workshop upon receipt of your response.  Along with the LWVOC Speakers Bureau co-chairs, Denise Burton, our newly appointed LWVFL Speakers Bureau Co-chair, will be attending the workshop and sharing her expertise with us.

We look forward to receiving your RSVP and working with you to fulfill one of the LWVOC primary goals of educating your fellow Orange County residents about national, local and state issues that affect their daily lives
