Thank you to all Volunteers!
We'd like to thank all of the League members and students who volunteered their time at our February 24 Candidate Forum, and the March 6 Westmont Candidate Forum. Sue Whitworth, our Voters Service Chair, spent countless hours preparing for the forums, communicating with the candidates, and organizing the volunteers to make the Forums successful League events. Thanks, Sue!

LWV Elmhurst Members in Action!
The League has been busy this Election Season!
Thanks to the efforts of League members and Voter Registration Chair, Maria Hirsch, who coordinated numerous voter registration events, we have been busy registering voters for this year's primary and general elections. Maria also coordinated mock elections at various high schools. We held our Candidate Forum in February and October, both coordinated by Sue Whitworth, Voter Services Chair, and we have educated citizens on ballot referenda.
