The LWV of Portland is cosponsoring a series of webinars organized by the Piedmont California League. We are one of eight League cosponsors from around the US. The February webinar in this Defending Democracy Series featured Rob Richie speaking on ranked choice voting. Portland LWV President Debbie Kaye introduced Richie, who is the President of FairVote.
