Observer Corp

What is the role of an Observer? The Observer is intentionally quiet, and only observes. Members of LWV-NEMI will attend various community board meetings. A summary report is sent to Kathy (Secretary) and Trina
(Newsletter).

If you are able to be an Observer at local board meetings, call Doris (989)255-5534

Board Actions on LWV-MI Positions

It was agreed that LWV-NEMI will support retention of all State Positions as they stand, with a few exceptions: We recommend that National Resources/Great Lake Ecosystems include wording about PFAS and about aging septic systems leaching into the environment.

Solid Waste Management should include wording about recycling.
The Board invites and welcomes any thoughts on these Positions from the Membership!


We will revisit the positions at the February meeting, and feedback to the State is due March 1. The current Positions can be found in your Annual Meeting packet, or at https://lwvmi.org/lwvmi-positions/

Voter Guide

Know Your State Candidates? LWV Voter Guides Can Help.

The League of Women Voters of Michigan have published easy-to-read, newspaper-style Voter Guides that provide information from candidates running for state offices in Michigan. Guides include candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor, State Board of Education, and the Boards of Education for U of M, Michigan State U, Wayne State U, Supreme Court, and the wording and explanation of State Ballot Proposals. The voter guides assembled responses to questions using candidate’s own words.

Voter Guides are available at the Alpena County Library, Alcona County Libraries, and Presque Isle Libraries.
