As a retired state employee, I enjoyed attending the District 20 meeting of the Alabama Retired State Employees Association in Gadsden at the The University of Alabama Gadsden Center. District covers Etowah, DeKalb, and Cherokee Counties.
It was great meeting fellow retired state employees, especially a few from DeKalb County. DeKalb County is where my mother was from and where most of her side of the family still lives.
I spoke to the group about absentee voting procedures, in general, and recent changes in those procedures, in particular.
