SUFFRAGIST BOOKLET PUBLISHED
"Seven Women Who Never Gave Up" a 30 page booklet about seven leaders of the American suffragist movement is now available. While isolated at home during the pandemic, a team of members of the Montezuma County League of Women voters have written, edited, proofread, and published this project. Half of the copies will be donated to the high schools of the county to be a resource for civics and history teachers.
A copy can be purchased for a donation of $5.00 to the League of Women Voters of Montezuma County. The booklets are a trove of little known facts. One entry is about Colorado’s own newspaper owner and suffragist, Caroline Nichols Churchill.
The booklets would be interesting holiday gifts for family, friends, and young people. Send requests to Connie Fox at email@example.com.
She will arrange to deliver the booklets to you.
County Clerk Percell on Voter Information
Click here to participate in the 10am Saturday Oct 10 Zoom Meeting about Voting with Kim Purcell, County Clerk.
The Montezuma County Clerk Kim Percell will present voter information
through a Zoom presentation on Saturday, October 10, at 10 a.m. The
program is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Montezuma County
and the Zoom link will be available on the League's Facebook page which
Kim Percell will cover many topics related to voting. She will begin by
explaining the responsibilities of the County Clerk and review
Colorado's mail-in ballot system. Percell will discuss the safeguards
that will prevent voter fraud and discuss the process of how ballots are
counted. Other topics will be how to check on the status of your voter
registration, what to do if you do not receive a ballot in the mail, how
to make a correction if you make a mistake on your own ballot, where
drop boxes will be located across the county, and many other important
aspects of the up-coming voting process.
If you can not participate during the live program, the League will
record the information and have the program available later through the
Facebook page. The League of Women Voters encourages all citizens to
participate in the voting process which is a key aspect of the American
social structure. Every election is important and every vote counts.
