Pros & Cons
Click here to access the Pros & Cons online.
Every election where there are ballot measures, the League of Women Voters of California creates the Pros & Cons, a nonpartisan publication discussing each ballot measure.
Your local League is doing a presentation of this information on October 12 at 2 P.M. at the League Office.
Watch, Volunteer, VOTE!
Dear Voter Service Volunteers and Would-be Volunteers,
It has been a long and arduous process getting to this point in the forum schedule, so I beg you all to indulge me and fill up my voice mail and e-mail boxes right away with dates that fit your calendars. Email the League or call 768-3118.
All are on Mondays or Wednesdays beginning at 7:00 p.m. with 6:30 arrival for LWV workers (as well as candidates), except for Congress on a Sunday at 9:00 a.m. with 8:30 arrival for League workers.
There are no forums for State Senate, Assembly nor Del Norte Sheriff; candidates did not agree on dates.
REMINDER: IF YOU ARE SUPPORTING A CANDIDATE IN ANY VISIBLE WAY (A SIGN IN YOUR FRONT YARD, YOUR NAME ON A CAMPAIGN LETTER OR A LIST IN A PRINT AD, A BUMPER STICKER, HOSTING A MEET-AND-GREET, ETC.), PLEASE DO NOT VOLUNTEER TO WORK IN FORUMS INVOLVING THAT CANDIDATE.
Whom Will You Nominate?

Renew Your League Membership!
Thank You Being A Member of the League
League dues are due, and we've made it easy to renew your support of the League.
If you were one of the 37 members and guests at our Fall Kick-off Brunch, you know how much fun it was! Many thanks to Kathy Johanson, our new Hospitality Chair, for all the arrangements and the delicious food by Ramone's.
It was such a pleasure to see two of our Charter members, Phyllis Helligas and Rosemarie Falor-Luis, in attendance. Our League owes so much to those first members whose enthusiasm and civic engagement started our League in 1956, and helped us maintain our vital and effective League over the years.
Our speaker, Carolyn Crnich, who is retiring at the end of the year as the Humboldt County Clerk-Recorder, and Registrar of Voters, gave us a very informative presentation on Trends in Voting: The Ups and Downs of Civic Engagement. Her remarks were particularly relevant to our new study for this year on Civic Engagement.
Carol Masterson gave us a preview of all the Voter Service activities for this fall, Becky Simpson invited everyone to help at the North County Fair, and Krista Miller talked about how all our members can participate in Civic Engagement through our new study and as part of our revitalized Observer Corps. There is something to excite everyone this year so be sure to volunteer where you want to make a difference.
For those of you who stayed after the meeting for our Voter Service Training, thank you! We look forward to your help during our busy election season. Thanks to Carol Masterson, Anne Hartline, Krista Miller, and Becky Simpson for your words of wisdom and enscouragement as you showed our members how they can help with candidate forums, with registering voters and by working in our booth at fairs.
Your Board is working very hard to help our members participate in meetings and events that we plan. We are offering different meeting days and times in hopes that more of you will be able to attend. We start with a Sunday afternoon meeting at 2 P.M. on October 12 in the conference room at the A1AA building. This will be a presentation of the Pros & Cons of the Ballot Measures for the November ballot. We hope to see you there.
We will alternate meeting times each month, with the November meeting on Thursday, November 13 at 5:30 P.M. at the same place. And our League holiday party will be on Sunday, December 14. Watch your VOTERs for more details about these events. Please let us know if these new times will work for you. How can we make it easier for you to get involved? Please text or leave a message at (707) 444-9252.
There is one more thing we have been discussing, and want your input about. We know that many of you receive the VOTER online only, and we are concerned that our information may not be reaching you in the best way. If you receive your VOTER online, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know you have read it. And let us know if you are happy with the way we are communicating with you. The first five people who contact me will receive a special gift if you mention this offer!
Don't forget to volunteer for Election Service this fall!
