Voting access remains a focus for League of Women Voters

This story was originally published by Door County Daily News.

Making sure your right to vote remained accessible was a major focus of the League of Women Voters of Door County in 2022. The organization hosted more than 90 events to ensure voters were informed leading up to election day and could cast their ballots when they were ready. Some initiatives included dropping off 411 Election brochures at the Door County ADRC building, sending individual thank-you notes to the county’s election workers, sponsoring free polls, and hosting candidate forums. League of Women Voters Door County President Susan Kohout is proud of the work the organization accomplished in 2022, even as the rhetoric around elections has become more toxic.

The League of Women Voters Door County will hit the ground running in 2023 with a pair of scheduled events. Along with more than a dozen other LWV chapters around the state, they are sponsoring a virtual event on January 10th about how the state’s conservation legacy has been impacted in recent years. The organization will host its Lively Issues event on December 12th at the Bertschinger Community Center in Egg Harbor, where members of the League of Women Voters of Door County and the general public will brainstorm critical local issues of concern for 2023.
