Fall 2015

Dear Friends:

Welcome to the website of the League of Women Voters of Bedford, Lewisboro and North Salem.

This year we are moving into the 21st Century, and saving trees by using our Vote 411 website to educate voters on local candidates and ballot issues for November 2015 and for primary races when they occur.  For those who still prefer the print edition, there will be free copies of our printed Voters Guide at the seven public libraries in our service area in October.  These libraries are Bedford Village, Bedford Hills, Katonah, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, North Salem, and Pound Ridge.  Additionally, the research librarians will be able to help you to use the website.  Check it out in mid September at Vote 411.org.  Gathering this information for the website and the printed edition is a service of the League of Women Voters all over Westchester. The information displayed is provided by the candidates themselves.

In the Fall we host Candidates Forums giving local voters an opportunity to get to know their candidates for town and village office.  In the Spring we hold Candidates Forums for school district elections.  We host registration drives in our towns.  We especially enjoy registering  18-year olds who will be voting for the first time.   Voter registration forms can also be found on our website, printed, filled out and then mailed to the Westchester County Board of Elections.  League of Women Voters members look forward to welcoming new citizens at Naturalization Court held monthly in White Plains. 

That's not all we do.  We study issues of importance at local, state and national levels.  We present forums and coffees on issues important to local residents  such as affordable housing, clean water and hydro-fracking. We will keep you well informed with our monthly newsletter about issues that state, national and local leagues are researching. 

We have fun!  Part of the draw of the League is the opportunity to work with and get to know vibrant, busy women and men in our area.

We are a busy group of volunteers.  We welcome new members to join our monthly meetings and special events.  By joining the LWV you will learn how local government works and how you can influence your representatives.  You will also make friends with others who share your concerns.   

For more information, send us an email or get in touch with our membership vice president, Kay Tyler, at kaykolman@optimum.net.

We look forward to hearing from you.
