Note: This meeting will be at the Marshall Community Center
Our March speaker will be Carol Noggle, President of the Prince William Area chapter of the League of Women Voters, who will speak on voting rights issues.
The League of Women Voters of Virginia promotes informed and active participation in government and actively contributes to voter education. The League is strictly nonpartisan so it neither supports nor opposes political parties or candidates for public office.
The League also advocates on selected government issues based on positions reached after careful, extensive research and study and member agreement. The Virginia League has positions on a range of issues including election laws, transportation, protection and improvement of the environment, education, health and justice. Periodically we have programs for the community on one or more of these issues.
The Prince William Area unit is especially active in voter registration, having registered nearly 2,000 high school seniors each year, and publishing guides for voters. Before each fall election they prepare a comprehensive guide on the candidates for publication in the local newspaper and online.
This is Carol’s first year serving as President of the Prince William Area unit while also having a position on the State League Board that gives her the opportunity to be present every day during the current session of the General Assembly in Richmond.
