Welcome to the website of the League of Women Voters of North East Westchester (LWVNEW). Our group was formerly known as the LWV of Bedford-Lewisboro-North Salem but we have expanded our territory to include Mount Kisco and Pound Ridge and have changed our name to reflect this expansion. A special welcome to the residents of our two new communities!
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 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. We recently 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 later this fall will follow that same format and feature our local school superintendents.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
