100 Years of Women's Vote in Illinois

Diane Gutenkauf

Diane Gutenkauf
Voter Registration Chair

Diane has been a LWV member for only a few years but her League background is deep. When she was young, her mother was very active in her local LWV and she clearly remembers her attending League meetings. It certainly left an impression on her!

Diane believes an engaged citizenry strengthens our democracy and she believes in League's work to register, protect and engage voters. She is excited to be the ELWV's new Voter Registration Chair and to help run mock elections for students because these tasks connect so well with her beliefs.

The 2016 primary and general elections will be great opportunities to run voter registration drives to both engage young people in the democratic process and to help new Elmhurst residents ensure their voter registrations are up to date.Look for details on a winter drive in January. Diane is also looking forward to working with York High School to run a mock election next fall.

Thursday, December 3: LWV Elmhurst Regular Program Meeting: Train Transporting Hazardous Substances -- Join the League of Women Voters of Elmhurst on December 3rd at 7:00 pm at the Elmhurst Public Library, 125 S. Prospect Ave., Elmhurst, for a discussion about hazardous materials being transported via rail through our yards, schools and playgrounds. Gerri Songer, a member of the Sierra Club Woods and Wetlands Group and contact for Energy Transport and Infrastructure, will outline the need for better regulations and more safety measures.

In May of 2014, Ms. Songer began attending Village meetings after seeing an increased presence of trains at all hours of the day and questioned what they were carrying. Through public records, she learned these trains were transporting toxic, hazardous, and explosive substances, and her research showed that many trains have met with accident and created hazardous runoff.

This program is open to the public and not an Elmhurst Public Library program.
