VERMONT — The public is invited to attend an Election 2022 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 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 role state officials and the media can play in protecting election integrity.

Panelists are Jim Condos, Vermont Secretary of State; Gyuri Kepes, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Communications, Landmark College; and Olga Peters, freelance journalist and host of The Montpelier Happy

Hour podcast. The program will be moderated by Joyce Marcel, writer of award-winning cover stories for Vermont Business Magazine.
