The League salutes those who are running for office—Marblehead is a town that is greatly enriched by the scores of volunteers who donate their time and talents to public service, the organization said.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan (with respect to candidates and parties) organization of women and men that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues. Membership is open to all.
