League of Women Voters    The League Voice

Welcome to our new monthly blog roundup!

The blog roundup compiles all of the blog posts we’ve written each month and is replacing our traditional eVoice newsletter. On our blog, Voices of the League, we cover a variety of topics ranging from our work at all levels of the League, including emphasizing work accomplished in local  communities across the country on our priority issues, marking important national developments, highlighting the work being done to grow and strengthen the League, and so much more.

We hope you’ll take the time to see what we’ve been up to each month through this roundup. Thanks for making democracy work.
