LWV OHIO CALENDAR 

Upcoming Events 2018

Many local Leagues and League members have requested a calendar of state League activities to help plan for the coming year. We hope the list of events and activities below is helpful. 
 
Please note that dates are subject to change. For example, if an all-member call or lobby lunch falls on Election Day or near a holiday, it may be rescheduled. This calendar will be updated as activity dates are confirmed, and event announcements will be shared via the Voter, LWVO’s League Leader Updates, and on the website (www.lwvohio.org). Click here to download the calendar. 
 
If you have any questions, please contact the LWVO office at lwvoinfo@lwvohio.org or 614-469-1505.
