The Howard County League of Women Voters enthusiastically holds activities that increase the understanding of issues that concern our community. The League continues to educate our community through forums, publications such as Voter Guides, and this Voter newsletter.
Our members are all volunteers. Our Board of Directors is the best Board in Howard County. We are successful because of our willingness to provide a service that we believe in.
LWVHC is 70 years old. We will continue to celebrate our organization’s accomplishments at our Annual Dinner and at every event we hold in 2016. We are set to have a great speaker and wonderful food.
Our candidates’ forum on March 19, 2016, was successful because of Howard County government, our member volunteers and sponsors—Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Howard, Howard County Association of Community Services, and Howard County Citizens. Our members can view rebroadcast on GTV at Verizon 44 and Comcast 99 and from one’s home computer at vote411.org or the LWVHC’s website.
We enjoy making democracy work by engaging and taking action on the nonpartisan positions that make this county government better.
The League of Women Voters of Howard County is busy protecting and promoting the voting right of our citizens. We protect and promote voter rights by keeping our citizens informed. We continue our voter registration drives in the high schools, create voter publications via voter guides, plan for our candidate forums and take action by providing verbal testimonies and writing letters to our community leaders. We address issues that concern our community.
In March we will offer nonpartisan information about issues and local candidates by providing forums. Our candidate forum will be March 19th at the George Howard Building. (More information on page 3.) Our forums are provided to educate our citizens about the candidates representing Howard County as a Board of Education member and U.S. House of Representative in Congress. Citizens can become informed as to where the candidates stand on issues that are important to this community. We enjoy making democracy work by engaging and taking action on the nonpartisan positions that make this county government better.
