General Membership Meeting. Guests are welcome. Come meet and mingle with League members and learn from a two-part program:

  • Beth Jozwiak on "Making Sense of the Electoral College: Then and Now". Why was the EC preferred by the founders over direct election? Why do we still have it? (The LWV has a position favoring the direct popular vote for President, and supports the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.)
