League of Women Voters of California Education Fund
October 6, 2011

I have been active in the League of Women Voters at both the state and local level and no other activity I have been involved in has given me as many personal rewards. I get enormous satisfaction from helping others learn more about candidates and understand the issues on the ballot. I enjoy the research/writing and training involved in voter education.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Visiting many different types of community organizations to explain ballot measures and important issues on the ballot. It is always heartening to hear people tell me afterwards how much the League information helped them understand the issues and how it makes them feel confident about voting.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help publicize the nonpartisan nature of LVW materials and educational programs. The League is know for its positions on election issues that we take only after careful study and member consensus, but there is a whole side of the League of Women Voters take is strictly educational and does not support or oppose candidates or ballot measures.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I reaearch and wrote several publications explaining ballot measures. I organized and moderated candidate forums. I am currently on a study committee to explore the pros & cons of voting by mail. .
