Judy Lotas was honored for her service as League Co-President.

On June 3, Dare League of Women Voters held a luncheon at Captain George’s Seafood Restaurant to wish Co-President Judy Lotas well as she stepped down from leadership after three years as Co-President. The Dare League installed Laura Singletary as the new President and Ginger Walters as Vice President, along with other elected officers and appointed directors.

As many organizations struggled through the pandemic, Dare League has grown to an all-time high of 112 members. Judy and Laura showered the Board with thanks for the many accomplishments they have achieved over the past year, including holding forums for the municipal elections; populating Vote411; and publishing and distributing 6,700 Citizen’s Guides to local organizations.

“We are thriving. Empowering voters and defending democracy every day,” Judy Lotas said.

Creative energy, enthusiasm, and community-minded men and women discussed how to better brand the centerpiece of the League’s work—Vote 411.org—a dedicated website full of voter information customized for every election.

They are also brainstormed on future educational programs to hold on education, the environment, the ERA, and voter engagement. At a time when many people feel discouraged by politics, the League shines with legacy and remains dedicated to preserving its of promoting one of our most precious liberties—our right to vote.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership is open to all genders and students are encouraged to join.
