Making Democracy Work returns to the airwaves today and we may sound a little different.  In an effort to maintain safety, we are using web conferencing technology.

With the General Election only 29 days away, Making Democracy Work focuses on important voter information. Today's discussion explores ballot and issue forums that begin tomorrow.

Host Linda Regan speaks with Lisa Langley, Chair of Candidate Forum Coalition and longtime member of League of Women Voters.
