JOIN US ON 10/22 at 7:00 PM AS THE LWV ELMHURST PRESENTS INFORMATION ON THE OPIOID CRISIS.
 
Understanding the realities of opioid abuse is critical to helping communities such as our own overcome it. On Thursday, October 22, at 7:00 PM, Mila Tsagalis from the DuPage County Health Department will join the LWV Elmhurst to address opioid use in DuPage County, as well as what services the county provides to those impacted by it (including DuPage County's Narcan Program and HOPE Task Force). Tracey Orick, our Elmhurst Public Library social worker, will also address the effects of opioid abuse on families and communities.
 
Please see https://www.eventbrite.com/e/125779542999 for further details and to RSVP.
 
PLAN AHEAD: PROTECT THE VOTE!
 
No one should have to choose between their health and the right to vote. COVID19 has created great uncertainty, but you can count on the LWV to stay in the loop on vote-by-mail legislation, as well as other important information to help you prepare for November 2020. For example, have you checked your voter registration status? Check out www.dupageco.org/election!) Also click here for our special section on voting by mail, and scroll to the end of this page for a quick video that addresses common concerns on voter fraud.
