Plan now to become more involved in elections and legislation in the New Year! Two new webinars are scheduled by the State Library to help alert citizens to voting procedures and to learn about proposed legislation in the SC General Assembly.
The first webinar, Getting Ready for the Elections, will be held on Monday, January 25 at 11:00 a.m. Are you registered? Do you know the candidates and issues? Will you vote absentee? Will you be able to answer questions of your neighbors and friends to help them be prepared? Join Elaine Sandberg, Information Services Librarian as she explores the resources of scvotes.org, the website of the South Carolina Election Commission to find just what we need to be prepared to vote! Register for this webinar here. If you would like attend the session in person at the State Library, contact Mrs. Sandberg for information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The second webinar, Legislation Resources, will be held on Monday, February 22 at 11:00 a.m. Are you interested in a particular issue that will come up in the General Assembly this year? Do you know how to contact your legislators before a crucial vote is taken? How will state budgets affect my county? Just how much money is really spent on education? Join Elaine Sandberg, Information Services Librarian as she explores some resources on the scstatehouse.gov site, the new scrfa.gov site and sccounties.org site that are freely available to help us learn about the legislation, the state budget and state spending, and resources to help keep track of important bills.
