Making Democracy Work

Committees and Teams

Polls for the November 2016 Election

Lynne Roberts is recruiting and managing volunteers for working at the polls.
This is how LWVPC earns most of its income. Many members volunteer as this is right in the heart of the democratic election process. The training provided by the County is eye opening--a real learning experience. Please contact polls@lwvplacercounty.org for more information.

Ads for our Newletter

Marketers needed to recruit advertisers for our quarterly newsletters.

Newsletters in the past have carried advertisements for local businesses and events for a nominal cost. This is done regularly by the Nevada County league. For more information, email lwvplacer@yahoo.com or call 530)888-7161.
