Upcoming meetings/programs

The Mount Washington Valley unit of the League of Women Voters New Hampshire will host a dual presentation for the public beginning at 7 p.m. on February 25, 2020 in the multipurpose room of the North Conway Community Center. Free and open to the public!

"Learn about the 2020 Census" will be presented by Nicole McKenzie, Partnership Specialist U.S. Census Bureau. Her presentation will focus on the 2020 Census that kicks off on April 1, 2020. She will discuss the importance of the Census, how the Census keeps their data safe, and how easy it is to respond. She will also discuss temporary jobs being created that offer great pay and the opportunity to be part of history by helping the community get a complete and accurate count.

Following Ms. McKenzie`s presentation about how voting districts are formed based on the census,"Gerrymandering: a New Hampshire Solution" will be presented by Julia King, a member of the MWV unit of the LWVNH, and the unit's Liaison to the LWVNH. In this relevant presentation Ms. King will talk about how voting districts are formed, the importance of ensuring that districts allow voters of all parties to feel that their votes will be fairly represented, thus encouraging their participation in all elections. She will also review the current direction of our legislators and their by-partisan efforts regarding re-districting solutions so far.

The League of Women is a non-partisan organization.

The League of Women Voters is a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau and is actively sharing information across the country in support of the 2020 Census. The League of Women Voters national website highlights... "April 1, 2020, marks the kickoff of the 2020 Census. This process of counting will ensure that the political power, health, and safety of every community is maintained or enhanced in the upcoming decade. But communities that don't get fully counted in 2020 will miss out for the next ten years. Now is the time to get involved."
