Third Q&A Document - published 3/6/2023

If you missed the Registrars of Voters' presentation Administering Elections and Sharing Best Practices in a Polarized Environment, you can watch a recording of it here:

Greenwich’s Registrars invited RTM Members and members of the public to a presentation on Monday February 27 in the Cone Room at Town Hall at 6:00 PM at which the Registrars will share observations and experiences of collaboration on administering elections in today’s politically charged environment.  In addition, guest election officials from across the nation made short presentations on their experience collaborating with election officials across the country as part of the Alliance for Election Excellence.

In anticipation of the March 13 RTM meeting, the Registrars also addressed questions that have been raised since the RTM first voted on the Center of Election Excellence grant in January.    

At the end of the meeting the Greenwich Registrars had a special announcement about a new program where members of the public can get an even deeper understanding of how elections are run and the efforts of election officials to honor their oaths and make elections secure, transparent, and accurate. (See the Election Academy below)
