Meetings and Events

We have regular monthly gatherings called Timely Topics, usually held on the 4th Friday of the month. These lunchtime meetings feature expert speakers on important issues. Lasting for about 75 minutes they include a presentation and a Q and A. See our website (www.lwvwake.org) for information. All members are regularly informed about these and are welcome to bring guests.

Book Group meets every other month (see www.lwvwake.org for specifics).

Women's Equality Day is an annual celebration of the women in Wake County who serve in elected office. It is usually held on August 26, the anniversary of the 19th Amendment when women won the right to vote. The event is a reception in the late afternoon/early evening. This is the League’s main fundraising event.

Candidate Forums. As a non-partisan organization, the League is proud to be one of the foremost groups sponsoring candidate forums for local elections including county commissioners, city council elections and boards of education. In most years there is a local election for which we will offer forums in central Raleigh as well as often in the east and west of the county. We are proud to collaborate with other community organizations to reach as many diverse groups as possible.

Voter Services

Naturalization Services. On two Fridays monthly we attend naturalization ceremonies in the morning and afternoon at the USCIS center in Durham to assist new citizens in registering to vote.

We also provide voter registration support when non-partisan groups ask for assistance.

Voter Education and Access. We receive many queries about voting legislation, how local governments work and other general voting information. We have many members with a deep understanding of the laws and customs surrounding voting who provide these resources to our community.

Advocacy. Writing Letters to the Editor, lobbying, monitoring bills, observing Board of Elections meetings, County Commissioner meetings, School Board meetings and the General Assembly.
