Lunch with the League

Lunch with the League

League of Women Voters SLOCO Lunch with The League Series

Election 2020 Episodes are Concluded

Each Monday through November 9th we held webinars on Election 2020 topics which helped  voters understand the changes in the election process this year. You can still see the list of topics and videos of the episodes below.

Voter Service Chair Julie Rodewald hosted the series to give viewers accurate information about the full election process, which was largely new in San Luis Obispo County in 2020.

Lunch with The League will be held via Zoom webinar and will also be livestreamed over Facebook Live again in 2021.  Watch for announcements about new episodes.  We will provide new registration links then.
