Learn more about the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County

Submitted by Jeannie Tofanelli

Community members are invited to join Janice Bedayn, president of the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County, for an in depth look at the organization, including who they are, what they do, and where they are headed in the future. Now that the ballots are in, LWVWNC members say it's time to reflect on the group's work, posing such questions as, "How did we do this election cycle?" and "Did we meet the needs of our community?"

Members volunteer their time to promote the responsibility to vote, to offer an environment for candidates to respectfully and civilly promote their ideas, to educate voters on issues through a non-partisan lens, to provide tools for voters and to ensure that the right to vote is not withheld from any eligible person.

To that end, LWVWNC is jumping right in to begin preparing for the election of 2020. Their November 10 meeting is the kick-off of that effort. The meeting is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on Nov. 10 at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley. Coffee and "brunch bites" will be served at 9:30 a.m. For more information, call Janice at 530-265-0596.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. To learn more, visit http://www.lwvwnc.org.
