* Although membership was opened to men in the 1970’s, we keep our original name to honor those women who struggled for 70 years to bring the vote to women. The League was formed in 1920 to help newly enfranchised women become educated about the political process.

The Board meets monthly. Meetings are open to any member. There are two general membership meetings a year, the Annual Program in January or February and our Annual Dinner in May. We have several active committees who meet regularly and often schedule information meetings for our members.

We hold a Candidates Night prior to Election Day co-sponsored and broadcast by local radio stations.
