Happy Birthday to the League of Women Voters of Plainfield!

On May 14, 1920 (three months to the day after the formation of the National League of Women Voters), the first meeting of the League of Women Voters of Plainfield and North Plainfield took place. By September of 1920, over 3,000 women in Plainfield registered to vote after attending a citizenship school over the summer.  

The League of Women Voters of Plainfield is one of the oldest active leagues in the United States. Today, in our 94th year, the Plainfield League continues to educate and inform by providing local residents with factual, nonpartisan information on candidates and ballot issues, whether through voter's guides, candidate forums, town meetings or debates.
