Honoring Ann Bartlett
How to Access the Member Section at LWV.org
  Each member is assigned a unique membership number by the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) that allows access to Member Resources at LWV.org.

Membership numbers are included in the initial "Welcome to the League" letters sent by our membership team. We know it's not always easy to locate the number later, so m
embership numbers are now included in the annual printed membership directory, available at the office. Shortly, they will also be included in the password-protected online version at lwvtulsa.org.
Memorial Gifts
Ann Bartlett
We received another gift in honor of Ann Bartlett, who had been active in the Tulsa League for years. Mrs. Bartlett is the mother of Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett and wife of the late Governor and U.S. Senator Dewey Bartlett, Sr.

Thank you Gloria Caldwell for your generous gift.
