Common Cause Delaware will sponsor a free public educational forum, “Protecting Our Votes,” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 29 at Dover Public Library, 35 E. Loockerman St.

The 2016 Presidential election made voters aware of the need to protect voting systems and voter information. Concerns in Delaware range from obsolete voting systems to attempts by a hostile foreign country to hack voter files.

In Delaware, the state is preparing to replace the obsolete voting machines with new ones. Common Cause Delaware partnered with the Delaware Department of Elections, the Delaware Legislature and other groups and activists to ensure safe, easy, accessible voting for Delawareans. The panel will inform and educate the public on what kind of voting system Delaware should adopt and how voters can have a say in the process.

Featured panelists include Sens. Bryan Townsend and Anthony Delcollo; Rep. Charles Potter; Susannah Goodman, of Common Cause Washington, D.C.; Jim Stauber, chief of staff of the National Association of Letter Carriers; and community activist Stan Merriman.
