The County Apportionment Process with Joseph Bridgman Online


The League of Women Voters of Livingston County will present an educational program that focuses on county redistricting. Joseph Bridgman, the election coordinator for Livingston County, will describe the process, challenges, and realities of drawing a fair map for the County. This is an example of a government working with a bi-partisan Apportionment Commission of 4 Republicans and 1 Democrat, coming to the final map defining the boundaries of the nine commissioner districts in Livingston County.

REGISTER  (required) to receive a Zoom link for the program.

OBSERVER CORP
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!



The Observer Corps is a group of League members who agree to observe meetings of groups that regularly meet. This is an opportunity to get informed on issues that matter to your community by learning what public organizations do, who runs them, how they impact the community and just what the issues are.


We are seeking member volunteers to observe one or more government entities.  The extent of your commitment is flexible, dependent on what you’d like to take on. Meetings may be attended in person, on zoom, or viewed on the entity’s website. Quick training is available and the documentation of the meetings is simple. Find the Observer Report Form on our Observer Corp Page


Volunteers can observe whatever government agencies are of interest to them or the League. Our Observer Corps will attend meetings of the County Commissioners, city councils, township boards, library boards, and school boards. There are also meetings of other relevant entities such as planning commission, road commission, drain commission, etc. Find schedules on our Observer Corp Page


Your observations become part of our League’s mission to educate voters. Observations can help us in planning for candidate forums or informational presentations to our community.


Sound interesting?  Contact us at:  ObserverCorp@lwvbrightonhowellarea.org

Democracy is not a spectator sport.


The League offers opportunities to learn about and  be involved with issues important to our democracy,  and to connect with  others who may disagree politically (we need diverse perspectives)  but  value the democratic process.  

Our name honors the women who founded the League in 1919 at the advent of women's suffrage, but we welcome ALL people aged 16 and older to join us. 

It is important work.  We could do more with your help.  Learn more...
