The next few months will be busy ones for the league with several elections taking place as well as two Town Meetings. Registering citizens to vote has been one of the league’s main purposes and Marsha Platt organized Voter registration at the Grafton High School in early February so the students who are now 18 can vote in the Presidential Primary on March 1, as well as in Grafton Town Elections on May 17. Over 25 students were registered, plus we answered questions from students who will turn 18 in the next few months.
In late January we conducted our consensus meeting on the LWVUS Money in Politics study. Paula Leva was our discussion leader and Sandy Daly and Ellen Goguen did the presentation. We came to agreement easily on most of the questions and had a stimulating discussion on several items.
We have made preliminary plans for our March pot-luck. The date will be Sunday, March 13th and the location will be St. Andrew’s Church Hall. The topic will be Drinking Water – the quality and sources for Grafton residents. We will have more details for you soon.
