Workshop offers strategies for informed voters

BRATTLEBORO — The public is invited to attend an Election 2022 online workshop sponsored by the Media Mentoring Project on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m., via Zoom.

The program, “How To Be An Informed Voter: Cutting Through The Spin and Disinformation,” will explore the impact that disinformation has on elections, how citizens can cut through the noise to find accurate and credible information about the candidates and the election process, and the roles that state officials and the media can play in protecting election integrity.

Panelists are Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos; Gyuri Kepes, Ph.D., assistant professor of communications at Landmark College in Putney; and Olga Peters, a freelance journalist and host of The Montpelier Happy Hour podcast.

The program will be moderated by veteran Vermont journalist Joyce Marcel, whose award-winning work regularly appears in Vermont Business Magazine.

The workshop is free. Registration is required; email [email protected] for the Zoom link.

The Media Mentoring Project is a program of Vermont Independent Media, publisher of The Commons.
