Making Democracy Work: Tom Reeser, Executive Director of KOCT, North County's Community Television Channel and attendees at the League of Women Voters North County Fall Kick-off choose their words carefully at the Dove Library. The public was invited to pick the words that "spoke" to them about the Kind of Talk Democracy Needs.
Of course the refreshments in the courtyard were stellar as they always are at a League event. Participants explored the many opportunities to participate in our League activities this year, including Voter Service activities for September and October, the Book Club, the Civil Discourse study group, our Observer Corps, and the Speakers Bureau. A plug was made for Smart Voter, LWV California's comprehensive site for candidate and ballot issue information all voters need to make an informed vote.
You are always welcome to join us. Educating voters is a noble pursuit.
