The League of Women Voters is expanding!  Aurora, the second largest city in the state, has not had a League of Women Voters presence in more than a decade.  This past year, the LWVCKC created  an Aurora Committee. which began studying and addressing issues specific to Aurora. The group worked  on voter registration and candidate forums in Aurora. Recently, the committee was recognized by the state as a Member at Large Unit. At the Annual Meeting, the members of LWVCKC will celebrate the progress being made by the Aurora Unit.
