Grayling Chamber Spotlight-A-Member: League of Women Voters

GRAYLING – The Grayling Area Chamber of Commerce named the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Grand Traverse Area as its November Spotlight-A-Member.

The Grand Traverse Area LWV offered to sponsor a unit in Crawford County, therefore the CCU was formed in 2017. Since then, Marcia Koppa said the organization has worked to inform citizens and high school students, register new voters, engage candidates in forums and observe local governmental meetings with the goal of providing non-partisan voter information.

The League of Women Voters is not just for women. Men have been welcome as members since 1970! The League is 101 years old. Many of the founders of the LWV began as suffragists, putting their lives on the line so that that half of the adults in the country could go to the polls and vote. The League has also partnered with Promote the Vote and the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.

One thing the public might not be aware the LWN helps with is VOTE411.org. This offers candidates the opportunity to respond to questions pertinent to their candidacy. Millage and ballot proposals are presented and explained. 

For information on the League of Women Voters call 989-348-2933, visit lwvgta.org or email Marcia Koppa at mmkoppa@hotmail.com.
