League Basics: Learn about 97 years of empowering voters


The public is invited to a program Wednesday, Sept. 6 at Northwoods Bank Community Room to learn more about League of Women Voters. League has been operating for 97 years providing education and advocacy to strengthen our county's voting systems.

A meet and greet with coffee and cake will open the evening from 6 to 6:25 p.m. The program will start promptly at 6:25 p.m. with state executive director, Michelle Witte, and then those attending will break into small groups to answer questions on these topics:

• What does the League do? What kind of programs and events do we put on each year?

• What does it mean to be non partisan? How can you advocate on an issue without being partisan?

• Reviewing League positions and how do we arrive at this official positions?

• Voter Services: What do we do to support elections every year?

• What does it mean to be a member of League? What do we expect of members? What do members expect of the League?
