Cantigny, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, invites the public to their next Civic Awareness Series program on Thursday, October 12, at 7 pm. Guest speaker David Hiller will discuss a recent report about distrust in the election process.

The free presentation is in-person and online. Registration is not required for the program at the Cantigny Park Visitors Center, and parking is complimentary. Online viewers should register at Cantigny.org to receive a Zoom link.

In May 2023, the Washington-based Campaign Legal Center (CLC) issued a report called “(Dis) Trust in Elections: Identifying Who Distrusts the Election Process and Why.” The report is based on a study by the Ad Council Research Institute and was commissioned by CLC. As a new election cycle dawns, CLC

believes now is the time to educate, provide transparency, and rebuild Americans’ confidence in our elections.
