The League o Women Voters of the Copper Country – Gogebic Range Unit is holding their first annual meeting Thursday, May 18th, at 5:00 P.M. Head on over to the Gogebic Community College, room A303, to hear all about the non-partisan, non-profit organization, with sate chapters all over our country!
If you are not familiar with the League, it formed in 1920 and centered on passing the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, giving women the right to vote. Since then, women and men have worked to educate citizens on democratic privilege of voting, how/where to register to vote, ballot issues and candidates.
An example of their local work is the project to visit high schools in the region and the community college to inform young people approaching voting age about how and when to register to vote.
Membership is open to men and women, 16 years or older. Student membership is free!
