*Dear League Members,

We are planning some really interesting events in the next 3 months, and the Board made a couple changes at our last meeting that we want you to know about.

By the way, Board meetings are always open to members if you would like to see what is happening and possibly consider joining the Board in the future. Meetings are scheduled for the first Wed. of each month, 3:00 to 5:00 pm, usually at Trish Pegram's home. We welcome you to come, just check in with me to be sure there has been no change in time or place.

First thing coming up is our program explaining the election process in La Plata County. Full information is below. This will be a really interesting morning for any one who is a voter. With so much talk of voter fraud, insecure elections, and other election problems, we believe the facts need to be explained. This is what our County Clerk, Tiffany Parker, will do. Do plan to attend this, and invite everyone you know to join you

*WHAT'S NEW AND TRUE - An Explanation of the Election Process in La Plata County Saturday, Jan. 27, 10:00 am at Durango Public Library

Tiffany Parker, La Plata County Clerk & Recorder and Erin Hutchins, Election Administrator, will explain an entire election cycle, from registration through primaries, voting, and vote counting. There will be time for questions, and you will have an opportunity to examine the new voting equipment that will be in use this year. If you have ever wondered about the accuracy, validity, or safety of our elections, come hear and see for yourself what is really happening.

*LWVLPC MEMBERSHIP MEETING will be Feb. 16, 11:30 am, Durango Public Library, and we will have our regular soup lunch that goes with the Feb. meeting.

There will be a business meeting, during which the membership must discuss and decide on what to support for the National LWV Program on policy issues for this year. After that, one of our members who has a most interesting volunteer job will talk about what she does. She is Marie Roessler who helps local residents who are working toward becoming US citizens to prepare for this process and the citizenship test. And, just in case you have ever wondered if you knew enough to be a citizen, Marie will prepare a sample test of the real questions for us to take and find out how much we actually know.

*And don't forget LEGISLATIVE LOWDOWN, Saturday, March 24, 10:30 am, at Durango Public Library.

This is our annual program for hearing from both our State Legislators, Don Coram and Barbara McLaughlin, about what is happening in Denver and what they hope to accomplish. There will be time for answering your questions. It is always an interesting event and usually a full house.

*The last note for you is notice that at the Board meeting held Jan. 3, action was taken to appoint Karel Longan a member of the Board and Membership Chair.

We look forward to working with her the remainder of the year. Also, it was unanimously agreed that the committee previously called the Energy, Environment & Sustainability Committee, will now be simply the Environment Committee. The mission of this group will not change and they welcome any one of you who is interested in joining to contact Sally Bellerue (bellerue@gmail.com) for more information.
