Women in Logistics and Delivery Services (WILDS) invite you to join us for a free educational webinar on Vote by Mail, or as it is known more broadly, Vote at Home. This alternative to in-person voting is getting enormous attention due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the upcoming November elections. In addition to public health benefits, there are many reasons to implement vote at home. Holly will explain how vote at home generally works and the benefits of a vote at home system, including security features of the system. She will also share the work of the National Vote at Home Institute, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for and advises states on the proper implementation of vote at home to keep both voters and elections safe.
