LWVTV Magic: The first photo attached shows what "sets" up our booth. One table (provided), one suitcase (with our supplies), and a portfolio (holding seven office boxes, collapsed).
Once the suitcase (Information Booth/Table Set Up) is opened, and emptied, the boxes folded and decorated, we have a booth/information table, ready for voter registration and sharing of information.
Donna Dinsmore sits at the table ready to answer questions and register voters.
