Panel Discussion: Disenfranchised Voters and the History of Voting in Maine

  • Jesup Memorial Library 34 Mt. Desert St. Bar Harbor, ME 04609 (map)

Join Rhea Côté Robbins, Maulian Dana and Anna Keller at the Jesup Memorial Library for a panel discussion about how the passing of the 19th Amendment was both an incredible feat, but also incomplete in its mission. Many of the people who campaigned for the 19th Amendment could still not vote until many years after the Amendment became law. Côté Robbins is a founder and Executive Director of the Franco-American Women's Institute, an organization that promotes awareness about the contributions of the Franco-American women to the culture, their families and the communities they live in. Dana is a Penobscot Tribal Citizen and serves as the appointed Ambassador for the Nation. She was appointed by Chief and Council in 2017 and reappointed to a four-year term in 2018. This position serves as the government relations representative for local, state and federal governments. Keller is the executive director of the League of Women Voters Maine. 

There will be another talk in the fall at the Jesup Memorial Library. For more information on the talk at the Jesup, call 207-288-4245. And, for more information on the League of Women Voters Maine visit
