Andover Proclamation: League of Women Voters Making Democracy Work Day

The Andover Board of Selectmen honored the League and its 90th anniversary by declaring August 26, 2010 "League of Women Voters Making Democracy Work Day" in the Town of Andover. In the Proclamation, the selectmen recognized the League's contributions to making our community healthy, vibrant and strong through its nonpartisan efforts to improve government, increase civic participation, and impact public policies for lasting change through citizen education and advocacy.

August 26, 2010 marks the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States giving women full voting rights.

We thank the Town for its continued support of and cooperation with the League.
