League family and friends,


The LWV of Port Washington-Manhasset has researched our local polling areas where voter registration and/or voter turnout has been lowest, historically.

We have divided these regions up and plan to canvass every home in these areas between now and NOVEMBER 6th.  

Will you VOLUNTEER for 2 hours once or twice over the next few weeks, walking thru our neighboring streets, knocking on doors, handing out voter registration forms, and reminding citizens of the importance of their vote?

Please email to sign up. 

Enlist your friends.  All of them. Go for the hard sell, if you must! 

Come help us ROCK THE VOTE.

Help us register and engage voters, defend our rights to make ourselves heard, and take action on the issues that impact our lives.

Our country depends on it.   

P.S.  Please forward this along to anyone who may be interested.  You do not need to be a LWV member to participate!  

Assessment and Transformation Roadmap

Change is coming at all of us faster and faster and we need to adapt or get left in the dust. You can read the full report by clicking here

The first half is an analysis of other "federated" (i.e three-level) organizations and how some organizations somewhat similar to the League have adapted.

The second half digs into the changes WE need to make. These include working more seamlessly across the three levels of the League, using technology better to increase our communication with ourselves and with those we want to involve or serve, lightening the routine workload of our volunteers so they can focus on our mission to "empower voters, defend democracy," and generally questioning "the League way" when comfortable old ways are holding us back.
