Valentine's Day has a special meaning for the League!  It is our Birthday.  95 years young and going strong heading into our second century.

This Valentine to our members and supporters is a thank you for all you do and an invitation to join us for any of the activities listed below.

First, tomorrow night at 6:00p.m., Happy Hour at Shutters on the Beach.  A special invitation to all with February birthdays.

Then Saturday, February 28th, is Lunch with the Mayor, Kevin McKeown.  We have a new mayor, a new council, and, soon, a new city manager.  Mayor McKeown will share his thoughts on what lies ahead.
Motor Voter Implementation 
Thursday, citing clear evidence that the State of California is violating its federally-mandated responsibility to offer California drivers and ID card holders the opportunity to register to vote, attorneys from Demos, Project Vote, ACLU Foundation of San Diego and Imperial Counties, and the global law firm Morrison & Foerster sent a pre-litigation notice letter to the California Secretary of State on behalf of the League of Women Voters of California, ACCE Institute, California Common Cause, the National Council of La Raza, and several individual California citizens.  This press release contains links to the letter and to a new study from Demos.
