Our friends in the League of Women Voters are put out this call to action:Tuesday, August 18th, both the parish and city councils will vote on FINAL ADOPTION OFCO-069-2020 and PO-035-2020. The agreement will establish an early voting site at the Martin Luther King Center off of W. Willow St. in Lafayette. This is a compromise proposal negotiated by City Councilman Lewis to ensure a fully accessible early voting site for Lafayette Parish. If this passes both councils, Lafayette Parish will have 3 early voting locations available in October for early voting!The League has long advocated for a fully accessible, adequate early voting site for all of Lafayette Parish. See here for background of LWV-Lafayette efforts to push for a large, centrally located early voting site other than the 1010 Lafayette St. Registrar of Voters’ Office. 
Call and write your councilman! (map of council districts)

Urge them to vote YES on this item! Tell them you support parish and city efforts to expand access …
