The whole process will take several hours with the site re-opening on Thursday, February 20, 2014.

  • "The amazing women -- and men -- I've met through the League have taught me how to move capably through the tumultuous partisanship I find in my current job, and have become not just amazing role models, but wonderful friends."
  • "I found it inspiring to know about all the other aspects of League work and I was motivated to join. I also thought that it would be worthwhile and satisfying on a personal level to be able to work in a non-partisan way to try to effect change in my community and state."
  • "What an exciting endeavor! The League has allowed me to participate in events such as networking at the state level, meeting local officials in our community, participating in candidates forums and many more activities."
  • "I've been so impressed with the people I meet through the League. They are so down-to-earth and hard-working. No big ego trips, no holier-than-thou political correctness. Just really well-informed people who are in it for the long haul."
  • "I decided then and there to join the League which in fact did "get into" matters of local and national concern. They did not disappoint."
  • "Working with my local league has enabled me to meet some remarkable people, gain leadership skills and become a better public speaker. I wouldn’t trade my League experience for anything."
  • "Many times local issues in my community don't get the focus and attention they need to genuinely educate and engage the public on them...including me! Public forums my local League conducts make me feel a true personal connection to local issues and candidates."
  • "Our LWV unit has been behind many positive changes, including getting women to run for office and elected to serve! We are appreciated and looked to as change agents for the greater good."
  • "I decided to join the League to contribute a small amount of money to their civic engagement efforts. Five years later, I know how important the League is to registering voters, but even more importantly they are a source of unbiased information when it can be hard to find."
  • "Being a League member has greatly expanded my life! When I joined LWV of Wake County, NC, affordable housing and comprehensive sex education were my primary interests. Eventually, I became chair of the education committee and then League president."
