Exercising your right to vote is the single most important way to make your voice heard. First up in our Moving the Needle series is "All Things Voting". Several Midcoast women have been asked to discuss ways they've become involved in and work to engage others in the voting process - from efforts to increase voter registration and provide oversight on election day to discovering creative and meaningful ways that engage the youth vote. Not knowing how, when, or where to vote cannot be an excuse!

In Maine, we've been living with the social, economic and health effects of the coronavirus since mid March. It's easy to complain and feel bitter about the state of things but, those who have met the challenge head on and discovered new ways to stay viable, stand to come out of this with a stronger understanding of who they are and how they can make a difference.

Featuring Amy Hand, Jessie Davis & Jenn Rockwell with Sarah Austin.
