Greeley-Weld League of Women Voters Upcoming Meetings

The League of Women Voters of Greeley-Weld County holds regular membership and Leadership Council meetings throughout the year. Members are invited to attend and meetings are open to the public. We encourage you to bring guests to introduce them to the League of Women Voters.

Get to Know More about the National Popular Vote!

The state legislature is currently considering SB19-042 - National Popular Vote, a bill if passed would enter Colorado into the National Popular Vote agreement to elect the President by popular vote. What does that mean for state electors? What does that mean for voters? Come find out more about this proposal and be sure to bring your questions.

The League of Women Voters of the United States believes that the direct-popular-vote method for electing the President and Vice-President is essential to representative government. The League, therefore, supports abolition of the Electoral College through a Constitutional amendment. Until that is accomplished, the League supports the use of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact as one acceptable way to achieve the goal of direct popular vote for election of the president until the abolition of the Electoral College is accomplished.

Join us on Thursday, March 21, 2019, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Farr Regional Library, 1939 61st Avenue, to hear about and have your questions answered regarding the National Popular Vote movement. Linda Sorauf representing National Popular Vote Colorado will be the guest speaker. The meeting is free and open to the public. For additional information contact Barb at 353-6731.
