VOTING RIGHTS

Secretary of State Bellows is “working on a vision of a future where every voter can register and cast their vote at a time and place that works for them.”


On Jan. 4, 2021, Shenna Bellows was sworn in as Maine’s 50th Secretary of State. She is the first woman to serve as Maine’s Secretary of State, a role that involves overseeing elections as well as the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the Maine State Archives.


Shenna will speak on all three of these areas with special emphasis on elections and voting rights. There will be time allotted for questions and answers at the end of the lecture.
