An Informed Electorate : Tech for Voters

Informed Electorate Programs

Take a closer look at websites and apps to better inform your vote.
Monday, September 24 at 5 p.m.  Under the Dome.

Thomas Jefferson once wrote that a well-informed electorate is a prerequisite to democracy. This month, the Oshkosh Public Library puts the founding father’s wisdom into practice with An Informed Electorate. This enlightening series of four discussions will focus on ways that voters can become better informed about the issues impacting their lives.

Tech for Voters
Mon., Sept. 24 at 5 p.m.

Websites and apps are on tap tonight. Specifically, which of these sources voters can trust to stay informed about the issues and candidates on the ballot, both locally and nationally.

Fake News Panel
Thurs., Sept. 27 at 6 p.m.
What is fake news? How do you spot phony information and avoid passing it on? How do you vet news sources? Our Oshkosh media panel will sort out the topic: Nathaniel Shuda, Editor, Oshkosh Northwestern; Miles Maguire, Editor, Oshkosh Examiner and UW Oshkosh Journalism Department; and Karen Schneider, Publisher, Oshkosh Herald. League of Women Voters member Alana Erickson will talk about the impact of social media. 

All of these programs are Under the Dome.
