We Are All in This Together
LWVMC regrets having to postpone, delay and cancel events, especially in what should be a Centennial Year of Celebration of women winning the right to vote, the formation of the League of Women Voters, as well as what will be an important election season this November. However, it is in all our interests to contain and eventually stop the Corona Virus epidemic by following State and County health guidelines.
Still "Open for Business"
Though we are Sheltering in Place as advised, we will continue to plan, announce, and let you know what we hope to do to protect, promote and enable all qualified people to vote, and keep democracy strong in this country. This means that we will continue to meet (even if virtually by individual or conference calls), plan events (even if in the end we have to postpone or cancel), educate and reach out to voters, and continue to keep in touch with you, our members (through this newsletter, e-mail announcements, online videos, guides, and website links).
Stay Safe, Stay Calm, Stay Strong
There is a lot of regularly updated information available about COVID-19 from the County of Monterey Health Department: https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/government/departments-a-h/health/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov and the County of Monterey Office of Emergency Services: https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/government/departments-a-h/administrative-office/office-of-emergency-services/response/covid-19.
There is a lot you can do to stay mentally and politically active in place by keeping informed, standing by to volunteer, joining in virtual discussions, and staying in touch with others. High quality videos, links to planned voting activities, and other information can be found at: www.LWVmryco.org and http://votersedge.
