Dear League Leaders, Members and Friends:

If you have ever—or never—before had the thought, I’d really like to volunteer with the League of Women Voters (Diablo Valley) this year . . .  This is the time, 2020 is THE YEAR  you are so needed!

In our lifetime there has never been a time like this one when even the fundamentals of our democracy feel seriously endangered.  Our voter services and our online voter information resources are needed now even more with the voter information challenges, the deliberate misinformation campaigns we are facing.

#WhyIVote_LWVDV initiates our 2020 Get Out the Vote campaign.  Join with us by sharing what is important to you that motivates you to vote.  What you share can have meaning for a new voter or a previously turned-off voter or a voter who just needs a meaningful reason to restart their voting again. Take a selfie for our Instagram or Facebook page including friends and or family with a sign sharing your WhyIVote message.  Create a Twitter message using #WhyIVote_LWVDV to share your enthusiasm with the process.
