League of Women voters invite public to presentation on Ranked Choice Voting

November 2nd, 2017

A winning merger has taken place: the League of Women Voters chapters of Shrewsbury and Grafton are now one! I think most residents in both towns have heard of the LWV and may believe most towns of our size have a chapter. Not so. In fact, in all of central Massachusetts, this is one of only three chapters. In learning about the local League’s history, I recognize the thanks we owe the founding women and the current members (men included!) who continue to fulfill its non-partisan mission. A piece of that mission is to bring important national and state issues to public attention.
