The April VOTER Is Now Available
April 7, 2013
April is a blustery month, alternating between sun and rain, but you can keep your League safe and dry. There are still a few days left to buy your tickets to our most important fundraiser, or to donate if you can't join us. The last day to buy tickets to the 2013 State of the Community Luncheon is April 10. In this VOTER, read about our successful Humboldt Bay forum, and the results of our State Initiative & Referendum Study meeting. From the LWVC, learn about exciting new changes coming to SmartVoter.org.
April 7, 2013
During the busy weeks leading to the General Election last Fall, our focus was clearly defined with much time spent in registering voters, presenting candidate forums, explaining the Pros & Cons of the ballot Initiatives and working at the polls. Far from taking a well-earned break afterward, your League has been busy promoting voter education and civic dialog in a variety of ways. Many members have pitched in to help keep the League active.
If you participated in: the annual Program review, the Initiative & Referendum Study update, the Membership party, preparation for the Bear River Tribal election, speaking about the League to a governmental or civic organization, presenting the public forum on Humboldt Bay or the North Coast Youth Summit workshop, planning for the State of the Community Luncheon or the Annual Meeting, updating the Citizen's Guide, preparing the VOTER, maintaining the League's presence on the Web and in social media, or accepting a position on the League Board to have a direct voice in governance, advising and sharing viewpoints... and more, then you have helped Make Democracy Work. Your contributions of time and talent to the League help inspire and educate us all as we work together to fulfill our mission of encouraging active and informed participation of citizens in government.
Take a bow, everyone, and thank you all from my heart as we continue our efforts.
Nan Nieboer, LWVHC President
