Events and information

Bay County begins a geographical unit of the LWV

How to Join the Bay County Geographical Unit

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!
