November Unit Meetings for the LWVHC
Do you have an opinion about the Electoral College and how it affects our democracy? Do you know why we have an Electoral College? Do you think that we should abolish it? Do you think that we should keep it? You can answer all of these questions after you attend one of our two unit meetings in November.
At our November meetings, we’ll talk about how the Electoral College damages our democracy and how the League is working to abolish it in favor of a direct popular vote for electing the President and Vice-President. The League of Women Voters United States (LWVUS) adopted this position in 1970 and most recently updated it in 2010. What should we do next? Please join this interesting and lively discussion on The Electoral College, Yes or No?
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Residences at Vantage Point (formerly Vantage House)
Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. at Historic Oakland Manor
If you have questions, please contact the League's Program Director at [email protected]
There are no December Unit Meetings, however, mark your calendars for an important and enlightening meeting in January! We will be joining with the Savage Branch of the Howard County Public Library System to present Becoming Engaged in Your Community! We are very fortunate to have as our guest speaker Candace Dodson-Reed, chief of staff to UMBC’s Office of the President, Freeman Hrabowski. Candace is also the co-host, with Tom Coale, of Elevate Maryland, a podcast which explores the policies, people, and stories that “elevate” the conversation and find out what matters most in our communities.
This meeting will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at the Savage Branch at 9525 Durness Lane, Laurel, MD 20723. We look forward to seeing you there!
