We are the League of Women Voters of North East Westchester (LWVNEW). We provide voter education and information to the residents of Bedford, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, North Salem and Pound Ridge.

We are a local chapter of a national organization. The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan with regard to candidates; while we take positions on issues, we never endorse or oppose candidates.

Voter Service is a huge part of our core mission. To that end, each spring and fall we hold candidate forums that are free and open to the public. We hold voter registration drives several times a year. We also produce a printed Voters Guide and provide voters with a comprehensive online version at www.Vote411.org. Vote411 provides valuable information about candidates, candidate forums and polling places. It is fast becoming a go-to site for voting and election information.

LWVNEW also holds public programs. This fall, we will host our 4th annual State of the Towns with local town supervisors. We are also partnering with another local League chapter to present a program on the Constitutional Convention ballot question.

Feel free to email us at LWV.BLNS@gmail.com for more information on upcoming candidate forums, voter registration and programs. We are always looking for new members so if you are interested in joining us, contact our Membership Chair, Kay Kolman, at kaykolman@optimum.net.
