Dear League Supporters,

As the election approaches, we have many different events planned and there will be events and important information that pop up on a regular basis.  So, we are beginning a new weekly newsletter update to ensure that you never miss a beat.

For the week of, September 21st:

We are asking you to please send any endorsement sheets and/or voter guides from other organizations you belong to so that we can compile them all on a blog page.  We recognize that many voters use endorsements from organizations that have missions they support and voter guides with a range of questions while preparing to vote.  You can send this information to:  lwvnv2020@gmail.com
