Electing a President--Popular Vote or Electoral College?. Winning the presidential election without winning the popular vote has only occurred five times in the nation's history, but twice in the past 16 years. Come learn about the League's study of the electoral college and the position on which we can advocate for change, of which the National Popular Vote Compact is one acceptable way to achieve the goal of direct popular vote to elect our President.

All League members and friends are welcome. Hosted by LWVNH Greater Nashua Unit.

Women's March. Approved in DC by the LWV-US board for League members to participate with League ID. See our Action page for details.

March in Concord described by organizers thus: "The New Hampshire Women's Day of Action & Unity is an event in solidarity with the Women's March on Washington and in support of our collective rights, our safety, our health, our families, and our environment.

This is an inclusive day of action and unity. We believe in the strength possible when we act together and the necessity to build diverse coalitions because defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us. All are welcome who stand for religious freedom, human rights, climate justice, racial justice, economic justice, and reproductive justice. 

The NH Women's Day of Action & Unity aims to send a bold message to elected officials in New Hampshire and Washington, D.C. that we will stand together to protect the progress we've made. We won't go back!"
