Welcome to the League of Women Voters-Acton Area

    Census forms were mailed to every household on March 12.  Please fill these out and encourage neighbors and family members to fill them out.


  • Do you like to read non-fiction books? Come to one of our monthly Book Group gatherings at the Acton Memorial Library where we discuss a different non-fiction book each month. It’s one of the League’s most popular activities.
  • First Tuesday is a favorite of many of our members. At 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of the month, LWV-AA members used to meet at Bagel's Plus; now we are going to host First Tuesday via a Zoom conference. There’s no program; there’s no agenda. It’s just a free-wheeling discussion of whatever people want to talk about. 

    You can join the video conference using your computer at home (with audio and video if you wish), or by calling in from your phone (with audio only). We’ll share the information about how to join the Zoom conference soon.

    To find out more about how this technology works, click this link.
    Kristina Rychlik has also offered to set up a test Zoom with anyone who feels unsure about how to use the technology. Please contact Kristina at krychlik@mac.com if interested.

  • Study of Ballot Question Process. See the slides.
