(Green Bay, WI)  COVO (Coalition of Voting Organizations) and the League of Women Voters will hold a voter registration event at the City of Green Bay’s newest mural.  The mural was designed by Public Arts Coordinator Laura Schley, and painted by community members, in late July.  The voter registration event commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing the women the right to vote.  Holding registration events will ease burdens on voters posed by the pandemic.

When: August 18, 2020, 8 am to 6 pm

COVO is a local, non-partisan, all-volunteer group formed in 2017.  They’ve assisted thousands of residents by helping to navigate the voting process and to educate eligible voters.  For more information go to www.covobcwi.org.
