e.r.a. passes in illinois!

Illinois has now passed the E.R.A.! The vote in the house took place May 30, 2018! Now, only one more state is needed! Many are rejoicing at this vote but disappointed that Rev. Brian Stewart for this area voted NO.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The LWV Garage Sale, August 9-11, was a big success!

Thanks to all who donated, volunteered in any way and/or made purchases at the sale. Proceeds will benefit the local LWV and help the local LWV to reach more goals for active and knowledgeable voter involvement. 

A special thanks to John and Bonnie Cox for donated the use of the outdoor area at Turney House, which is right on Highway #20, for the LWV Garage Sale and for all of their help related to the sale.

Once again, thanks to all who were involved in any way with the Garage Sale. Your involvement helped to make the sale the success that it was.
