Democracy is not a spectator sport and we in the LWV of Huntington are definitely not spectators. We do voter registration drives, sponsor candidate nights, engage students in programs at their schools, help register new citizens at naturalization ceremonies, visit our elected politicians, attend Huntington Town Board meetings, do programs on the environment, health care, government, etc.
If you wish to know more about us, call the LWV of Huntington at (631) 421-5164 or email our officers or attend any of our meetings including board meetings. All are welcome!
