Grant for new
$10,000 grant awarded for Spanish Voters’ Guide
For decades Montgomery County residents have depended on a factual, non-partisan Voters’ Guide to sort through candidates and ballot issues prior to elections. For the first time ever, the League in partnership with El Tiempo Latino and with the assistance of a County grant is planning to produce a Spanish language Guide. The Spanish edition of the Voters' Guide will also be available on our website here.
Votes for women
The early years
Lucretia Mott drafted the call to convention at Seneca Falls, N.Y., July 19, 20, 1848. The demand for the right to vote was one of several resolutions approved by the women at the convention, but it would take 70 years for that demand to be met.
