Member's Spotlight

Many Spokane League members know that Susan Hales is all about voter registration and voter outreach to underserved communities. Susan's latest project involved suggesting that our Spokane League investigate what it would take to translate ballots into Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Chinese and Swahili, so citizens who speak those languages can use a translated ballot to guide them in filling out the official Spokane County election ballot.  The translations are done and a wonderful article about Susan's work is features on the front page of The Figtree October issue.
