On February 16th, the JFS Citizenship Program along with MIRA hosted a Voters’ Registration Workshop. The presentation by Thalita Dias from MIRA covered general information about elections and answered questions participants may had have.
New citizens who attended the workshop had a chance to learn about what their vote means and how their vote count both in local and federal elections as well getting assistance in filling out voting registration form.
Topics and questions answered during the workshop included:
- What is the difference between caucus and primary election, how does the process work?
- What does the senate do?
- What does the president do?
- What does the representative do?
- Where you could go and vote.
***The next event for voters registration will be in September 2016, day will be determined soon.***
