Happy New Year!
Welcome to the website of 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.
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. 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 local school superintendents.
This year marks the centennial of women gaining the right to vote in New York State and we look forward to marking the occasion.

registration and programs. If you are interested in joining the League, contact
