In a little more than a week, the appeal of candidates for elected office across the nation will be tested. But, the system that decides the winners will also undergo a test that will be watched just as closely. That's one of the reasons The Mississippi Gulf Coast League of Women Voters held an informational forum Saturday entitled "Safeguarding The Election."
The public's confidence in America's voting systems has definitely been eroded to the point where many now doubt that any election result can be completely trusted. Restoring some of that trust is the idea behind the Safeguarding the Election information forum, sponsored by the Mississippi Gulf Coast League of Women Voters.
L.W.V. President Margaret Ennis says their goal is to make sure the public is educated about issues and about candidates.
