SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR OCTOBER PROGRAM ON 10/22/20.
 
Please join us at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 22, 2020, for our monthly program. This month we will focus on the ongoing opioid crisis in DuPage County, which has been further exacerbated by the pandemic. Our discussion will be virtual and will feature Mila Tsagalis, Director of Community Initiatives for the DuPage County Health Department. Details on the Zoom link and how to submit questions are forthcoming, but mark your calendars now!
 
PLAN AHEAD: PROTECT THE VOTE!
 
No one should have to choose between their health and the right to vote. COVID19 has created great uncertainty, but you can count on the LWV to stay in the loop on vote-by-mail legislation, as well as other important information to help you prepare for November 2020. For example, have you checked your voter registration status? Check out www.dupageco.org/election!) Also click here for our special section on voting by mail, and scroll to the end of this page for a quick video that addresses common concerns on voter fraud.
