Welcome Bay County Geographical Unit!

Events and information

Bay County begins a geographical unit of the LWV

The Midland League of Women Voters is sponsoring a Bay County geographical unit of the League of Women Voters. A group of Bay County people hope to form their own LWV, but to become a full-fledged LWV, the group must first form a geographical unit with a sponsoring League. The Midland Area LWV agreed to be that sponsoring League. We will mentor them by helping them with background League procedures while they increase their membership and set up programs. Voters' service information for Bay County is one of their highest priorities.

We are delighted to have the Bay County League members as part of our League while they work to become an independent LWV. Their leader will be a member of our board and we will include their activities and progress on our website.

Keep watching this site for the progress of the League of Women Voters geographical unit in Bay County!

Bay County Activities

The Bay County unit met on June 3 at the Wirt Library, joined by Terry Townley from the Midland Area LWV, where they discussed the national and state League of Women Voters' positions and how Bay County can develop their own positions. Four potential new members attended. At a June 10 meeting, Sue McCollister, past president of the Midland Area LWV, answered questions on speakers programs and candidate forums. The Bay County unit plans to discus voter registration in with the Bay County Clerk to learn how the LWV can assist in voter registration drives.
