League of Women Voters Unit Meetings are made up of four to 15 people who want to discuss a study or become educated on a current topic.
A study is done by local members, and can be a local, state or national topic. When a study or topic is discussed, both pros and cons, and a look at both sides of a subject are included.
Unit meetings are the “grassroots” of the League of Women Voters. They are where differing opinions are welcome and where consensus results in wording to which our members can agree.
Check our calendar for information on dates and venues for unit meetings.
