Voter suppression is a very real and apparent issue nationwide. What is being done to combat this, and who are the people at the forefront of making voting easier for voters? The League of Women Voters Austin Area (LWVAA) is a nonpartisan grassroots organization that aims to protect and expand voting rights in the United States. Today's guest is Meet Pam Bixby, Vice President – Voters Service, a volunteer role that encompasses the Register & Vote, Voters Guide, Candidate Forum, and FirstVote! activities of the Austin League. In this episode, Pam sits with hosts Claire Campos O'Neal and Nichole Abshire to discuss the different obstacles to voting in Texas and what they've been doing to battle this and educate more people on the voting and election process. Only a small percentage of people are taking part in making decisions that impact all of us on a large scale. Tune in to find out why that is, and learn more about what you can do to get educated on these issues.
