Spring is here!

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; while we take positions on many different issues, we never endorse or oppose candidates or parties.

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 have 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.

LWVNEW also holds public programs. In 2016, we held our third annual State of the Towns, where our local town supervisors spoke about the states of their respective municipalities and then took questions from the audience. Our first annual State of the Schools program followed that same format and featured our school superintendents.

This year marks New York State’s suffrage centennial. We worked with the Katonah Village Library and the New York State Museum in Albany to bring a traveling exhibit to our area. Votes for Women: Celebrating New York State’s Suffrage Centennial opened at the library on March 3rd with a reception followed by a screening of the film Iron Jawed Angels. The exhibit is currently touring our area high schools.

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Pizzurro
President of LWVNEW
