75 Tuscaloosa Av, Atherton
September 23rd, 9am-12pm,

We are again grateful to longtime member (and past president) Lida Urbanek for opening up her lovely house and garden to us for our Fall Kickoff, on Saturday morning, September 23.
Our speaker will be Jim Irizarry, the Assistant Chief Elections Officer & Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder for the County of San Mateo.
He will be speaking about our Voter Registration information, its collection and safeguards, and how the recent request by the Trump Administration's Voter Fraud Commission (the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity), for all voter registration information--including partial Social Security numbers, military statuses, political party registrations and felony records--is being answered by California. He will also speak about SB 450, the election reform bill signed last September. San Mateo County will be among the counties where new voting options would begin in 2018, while the remaining counties would be allowed to adopt SB 450 reforms in 2020. The new election model makes voting easier by expanding early and mail-in voting, increasing drop-off options, and by allowing inperson voting throughout one's county of residence, not only at a specified precinct. There will be time for Q&A after his presentation.
