Upcoming Meeting Info

April 19, 2018
11:30am - 2:00pm
Background: The LWVMP EV Team has studied Maricopa County elected offices since 2012. In 2016 -17, veteran Leaguers Maureen Schmid, Barbara Sherman, and Sandy Kaszeta use that data to teach popular classes at Maricopa County Community Colleges about our county government. Every two years, a portion of county offices come up for election.
It’s time to review county offices, commissions, and candidates and to help voter get county information for their November 2018 midterm ballots. At the March 15 meeting, the LWVMP EV Community Team will plan how to make it easy for county voters to access crucial information for 2018 election decisions.
Maricopa County decisions affect all of LWMVP. Join in and be a part of this crucial plan.
Please RSVP to Marge.

Sept, 2017 Report
The East Valley Team will concentrate this year on on Making Democracy Work. We started our discussion by reviewing the LWVMP handout "Advocate 2018: Using Your Voice and Vote" and suggesting that our members give copies to friends who want to become more active and informed on important issues. Updates on several issues followed including: status of the education referendum on vouchers, what happened at the Article V constitutional convention planning sessions, voter registration training sessions and opportunities to register voters, and We the People Summit plans.
