Lopez Continuation High School

Join League members and help register voters at high schools in our county. To help out with this event, please contact Julie Rodewald.

The League only takes action on issues after careful study and consensus by members.  The result of this process is called a position, and our positions define what action we can take on an issue.  We have positions at each level of government and we take action at all levels.
