Lunch and Learn
Sept. 21, 2016
11:30 p.m. – 1 p.m.

“Bad officials are elected by good citizens who don’t vote,” said George Jean Nathan. Don’t be a nonvoter. Find out how many races – many of them local – are impacted when you exercise your right to vote. The League of Women Voters experts will explain how to register, when to vote and where, which offices are up for election and more. Nonpartisan but never unexciting discussion will ensue. Follow this link to register for the event.

It is a worthy event and fun, too. Join us!
