Welcome to the League of Women Voters of Greater Hartford!
2016 ELECTION ACTIVITIES
The LWVGH served as moderator for an election related program sponsored by the CCSU history department. "To Vote or Not to Vote " was a student led discussion that ranged from criticism of the US campaign system to social movements that some students thought were more effective than voting to the power of the vote and having ones voice heard. Seen in the picture with the students is League president Carole Mulready who served as moderator during the discussion with the student panelists and the audience. History professors Katherine Hermes and Matt Warshaur were key to the success of the event.
The League of Women Voters is a national non-partisan political organization, which was established in 1920, the same year the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteed women's suffrage.
Our Greater Hartford League was established in 1923, pursuing the same goal: to produce informed voters. The League is organized on the national, state, and local levels, with appropriate "study" and "action" activities taking place on one or more levels at the same time.
