The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons will present “Make Your Voice Heard” on Monday, September 17, at the East Hampton Library, in the library’s Baldwin Family Lecture Room, from 2:30 to 4:30 PM. The community event intends to help people become better political activists and remain politically informed.

The event will feature the County League’s “2018 Directory of Public Officials,” which includes contact information for elected officials on every level of national, state, county, town, and village government.

Everyone in attendance will be encouraged to get involved in their community and seek out ways use their votes to the fullest. As Hamptons League co-presidents Estelle Gellman and Susan Wilson explain, “The mission of the League of Women Voters is to empower citizens and to encourage the active and informed participation of citizens in government. The League has had a long-standing motto, ‘Democracy is not a spectator sport.’”

Participants can also sign up to assist the League with setting their numerous voter registration tables, which range from Westhampton to Montauk. The tables will be set up on Tuesday, September 25, coinciding with National Voter Registration Day.
