LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland.
DIRECTIONS: One block north of Alcatraz on the West side of Telegraph, wheelchair accessible. Buses pass by regularly. Ashby BART is approximately 7 blocks away.
Questions to address include:
* Was it a good idea to boycott the state races?
* Is it a good idea to do what huge numbers of eligible voters do: boycott the whole election?
* What were the overall and specific results of this particular election, and what does it mean for our future planning?
* How do we get a better democracy, better government, better quality of life?
* Bottom line question, â€œHow can we make the best use of the power and resources — time, money and energy — that we have?"
