The League of Women Voters of Newport County (LWV) has announced that it will screen No Time To Fail, a documentary film produced by Sara Archambault of ArchandBow Productions, on October 17 at 7:30 pm at The JPT.
This documentary follows Rhode Island state and local election workers as they carry out their duties under very difficult circumstances during the 2020 election.
“The leaders of the Newport County League believe that this film can make a significant contribution to the public’s understanding of the value that election workers provide to maintaining the integrity of our democratic system of government,” LWV says in an email to What’sUpNewp about the event.
More on the event from LWV;
One of the fundamental and guiding principles of the League of Women Voters for over a hundred years has been fighting for and securing the right to free and fair elections. The League continues to protect and expand voting rights and ensure everyone is represented in our democracy. With a non-partisan approach, our goal is to empower voters and to defend democracy through education.
The LWV Newport County believes that the documentary, No Time To Fail, is an excellent tool that responds to the misinformation about voting that came from the 2020 elections. The League of Women Voters Newport County is excited to join the Jane Pickens Theater in showing that even under difficult circumstances, Rhode Island election workers protected free and fair elections through their diligence and dedication. They are the foundation of our democracy. We applaud them and the filmmakers who made this important and timely documentary.
