Upcoming Events

The LWVES Board of Directors is busy planning some special topic meetings for you to attend during the 2017-18 calendar. We are looking forward to sharing information on local and state government issues, e.g. Redistricting, Civil Discourse, Citizens Election Program, National Popular Vote/Electoral College and more.

We welcome anyone who would like to join us! We have members who come from the shoreline towns from Branford to Old Saybrook. If you are looking for a way to be active on issues without supporting political parties or candidates, then we are the place for you.
