League of Women Voters Las Vegas Valley never supports or opposes candidates for office, or political parties, and any use of the League of Women Voters name in campaign advertising or literature has not been authorized by the League.
We are proud to annouce that we have been chosen as Vegas Seven's Best Political Organization 2015. To quote the magazine: "The League of Women Voters of Las Vegas Valley succeeds where some other political organizations fail: Quite simply, they keep their members informed. In the past year, the League's local chapter, which was formed in 1964, greatly enhanced its profile by regularly sending updates on the Legislature, and recruiting key community members to speak at meetings about issues such as the voting system and solar energy. The group also engages with its audience on Facebook and Twitter (nonmembers are encouraged to glance at the League's social media accounts to keep tabson the progress - or lack thereof - on current issues)."
Thank you Vegas Seven!
