LWVO Training and Presentations:

  • Ballot Measure Pros/Cons.  Is your community group looking for objective information about Oakland ballot measures? Trained representatives of LWVO are eager to speak to schools, churches, companies, neighborhood associations, and other groups.  Presentations are unbiased and present opposing points of view on issues; they are designed to give voters the information they need to make up their own minds.  To inquire about a pro/con presentation, email Helen Neville at helennev [at]  
  • Voter Registration.  League members can provide virtual training on how to register to vote. Members of your organization who attend this training will learn how to register voters and/or train others in the organization how to do it.
