Electoral College Presentation
Start the new year out right with a thought provoking evening with the League! We're meeting Tuesday, January 8, 2019, 6 pm at the Bloomingdale Public Library.

The topic is the Electoral College -- a puzzling system that often has people scratching their heads about how it works and why we use it. More and more Americans are questioning this system and would like to see it replaced with direct election of our President. Join us for a brief history of the Electoral College, a discussion of its impact on our democracy, and how to change to direct election of our President. Our guest speakers will be issues specialists from the state League.

Young people came together and planned this gun violence prevention event. Students, 
 parents and colleagues gathered in Schaumburg as well as in communities across Illinois to “March For Our Lives.”  This group from LWV Roselle/Bloomingdale participated. 
  
The marches were planned to coincide with one held in Washington, DC planned by students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL where a former student walked into the school on Valentine’s Day and shot and killed 17 students and faculty and wounded many more.
