Weiss to speak at Nov. 12 LWVNOW meeting

The November meeting of the League of Women Voters of the Northwoods (LWVNOW) will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Oneida County Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of the Northwoods, 100 W. Keenan Street, in Rhinelander. It will be a "Brown-Bag" meeting, so bring your lunch, organizers said in a press release.

"In 2020, the League of Women Voters will be 100 years old," the release states. "Our celebration begins in November, with a video interview of Elaine Weiss, author of 'The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote,' followed by a discussion of her book. This fascinating book tells the story of the final state, Tennessee, to ratify the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. It reads like a suspense novel, full of political intrigue and maneuverings, and even though the final outcome is known, the path was definitely not an easy one. So, bring your lunch and join us for a bit of history and a lively discussion! The public is invited to attend."

The LWVNOW encompasses Florence, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida and Vilas counties. The local league belongs to the state and national League of Women Voters, a non-partisan organization devoted to helping members and fellow citizens develop educated political opinions and act upon them through the democratic process. The group's monthly meetings and sponsored events are open to all. For more information, visit

Answers to questions about voter registration and voting can be found at, from your local clerk or local library, the release notes.
