A Message From Our Presidents

Over the last few years, we have been experiencing unprecedented growth in our membership. There is a renewed interest in local, state and national issues. In addition to the upcoming national election in 2020, the League of Women Voters will be celebrating  our 100th anniversary. We are especially excited in Illinois because we were founded at the Congress Hotel in Chicago on February 14, 1920. There will be local and national celebrations next year so please check our website to learn more about how to get involved, how to register to vote and obtain information on League of Women Voter  positions.  Everyone is welcome at our monthly community meetings and at our candidate forums. We are excited about the next two years. Stay tuned. - Erica Nelson and Kristin Malone (Co-Presidents)
